what do you mean by chip ? The SIM card or The SD card ?
it it is the 1 st one the answer is no. If it is the second the answer would be yes

I think he's referring to Koodo chip as (SIM), if it's that, he can use it his Virgin phone (that should be unlocked first)

The phone originally obtained from Virgin would need to be unlocked before it will work with Koodo. There's no guarantee it'll be perfect, either. Check if it's compatible here:

Most of Bell/Virgin unlocked phones are compatible with Koodo/Telus network, except CDMA phones.
