Samsung Galaxy S 2 compatibility with Prepaid plan

I have the opportunity to purchase a new Galaxy S 2   4G Android phone that is in Virgin Mobile packaging - unopened - it says 'no contract'.  The seller has not activated the phone or even opened the box.  Will I be able to use this phone as my upgrade on my prepaid 3G flip phone? Will the SIM card work in it?  if not, what do I do?  Also, Is there a way to transfer my contacts, data and images to the new phone?   tia

A Samsung Galaxy S2 is over 10 years old now, and was a 4G phone only by AT&T's twisted definition of HSPA+ as "4G".  AT&T is phasing out HSPA and HSPA+ and will not activate this phone, so unless you need a doorstop, I wouldn't buy it.
