Regarding the April 17 Sprint pre-paid rule: can I still sell my used phone, (former Virgin Mobile pre-paid)?

I understand how this rule applies to carriers such as RingPlus:

I recently switched to a new carrier with a new phone.

A phone I no longer use is a Nokia Lumia 635, a prepaid phone I bought and used since last year for Virgin Mobile (my former carrier that runs on the Sprint Network).

Will I be able to sell this used phone to a present or future Virgin Mobile customer or is there a chance activation issues may occur for the new owner?

Not clear if this rule applies to such situations.

Thanks.

If it's a Virgin Mobile branded phone, you can activate it on Virgin Mobile later - the april 17 thing only affects using one brand on another mvno (ie. using a virgin mobile phone on ringplus)
