Default change from sprint to virgin mobile?

is there a way to flash, or change carrier, and number to virgin mobile?, buy an unlocked sprint gs5 and make it so that pay 35$ a month for a vm plan, I know on my gs3 virgin mobile you can flash to sprint, like change modem, carrier boot screen and basically everything, but I still payed for vm service on a basically sprint phone, so I flashed a stock .spr tar and made my vm phone a sprint phone, but I want to make it the other way and make it so I pay for virgin mobile and that I have a vm vrriant of the phone? possible?

You can't unlock to a CDMA carrier. You must flash the phone. Currently the S5 is unflashable due to no way to get past the IMEI certification.
