    since Virgin is CDMA-using Sprint network (no SIM) and ATT is GSM so they are not compatible...

    T-Mobile. Depending on your area (check with T-Mobile), sometimes T-Mobile has better reception than AT&T. In some cases, AT&T fares better in coverage than T-Mobile. It really just depends on where you live so check out T-Mobile as that is your only (major carrier) GSM option (at least that I would recommend if AT&T is not for you).

    As others have suggested T-Mobile is your only other option. However, you will have to JB and Unlock to use T-Mobile. This is very simple if you do not upgrade to IOS4. Since you have already updated you will have to wait for a new JB from the Dev team.
