Virgin Mobile seeks 5 of its customers to test the Samsung Galaxy S4
Virgin Mobile is searching for a 5 person "Tester Team" willing to pass along their experience with the Samsung Galaxy S4 to others on Twitter. To become a member of the team, the applicant must already be a Virgin Mobile customer with a smartphone data plan or be willing to upgrade to such a plan.  If you are interested, you need to go to the website that Virgin Mobile has set up, which you can access by clicking on the sourcelink, and write a 100 word essay on the things that make you "an awesome Virgin Mobile phone tester."

If you are selected, the pre-paid carrier will outfit you with a Samsung Galaxy S4 which you will get to keep. But to earn the phone, you will need to tweet your experiences with the handset to hashtag #vmtester. This is the fourth time that Virgin Mobile has put together a "Tester Team" with the others related to the launch of the HTC One, BlackBerry Z10 and HTC Desire C.

We should point out that this promotion is for Virgin Mobile Canada. only.

Virgin Mobile is getting the S4? Bye bye major carrier contracts.

Virgin Mobile Canada, so U.S. VM customers are out of the deal. If the S4 and the One make it to prepaid here in the States, then the days of 2-year contracts will surely be numbered. Only downfall is that the prices will be substantially pricier than the rest of the lineup. The SII is still going for around $300, so the S4 and One will be even higher. Still, a tempting prospect, if it happens here.

If the Samsung Galaxy S4 goes to Virgin Mobile USA, it will cost at least 550$(16GB version), but I wouldn't be thinking too much about it and I might buy it. I have a Samsung Galaxy S2 in Virgin Mobile and that phone works very good for me, even though it looks outdated in front of many Android Smartphones now. I would say to Virgin Mobile: "Please, bring the Samsung Galaxy S4 to Virgin Mobile USA, I will buy it no matter the cost."

Virgin getting the S4 is tempting, $35 per month plan & LTE in my city might make me jump before the Note 3 reaches the US

LOL...virgin mobile. Putting an S4 on VMO is like having a 2012 Shelby Super Snake and pulling it around with an old truck.

I have had virgin mobile for 3 years and they have served me great.And iv never had service problems. The only bad thing is that I have one of their lower end phones, the HTC One V and after loading it down with music andapps it slowed down very bad! So if they get the S4 without thinking im going to buy it.

And their ran and owned by sprint. I was with sprint before Virgin and only thing that changed was my payment every month. Quality, service, etc stayed the same...GREAT!
