Virgin seeking a few good Canadians to be part of their BlackBerry 10 “Tester Team”

Whenever a new device comes out on Virgin Mobile they offer up the opportunity for Members (subscribers) to become part of their “Tester Team.” There’s usually only 5 spots available and you must use the device for 4-weeks and post your thoughts on Twitter for all to see, but as a thank-you Virgin gives you the tested device to keep.

Virgin has already announced plans to launch RIM’s new BlackBerry 10 smartphone, plus they’re offering up a chance to win 1 of 4 new BB10 devices. To sweeten the pot it looks like Virgin is getting prepared to open up the BlackBerry 10 Tester Team program. They note on their site that “WE WANT YOU! JOIN A VIRGIN MOBILE TESTER TEAM. The BlackBerry experience. Re-designed. Re-engineered. Re-invented. And we want you to have a chance to get your hands on the re-invented BlackBerry first.”

However, the terms and conditions currently date back to December when they kicked off their HTC One S Tester Team… so it might be a bit premature. However, if you’re an eager Canadian (excluding Quebec) you can go forth and fill out all the important info and also include in 100 words or less why you’d be an awesome Virgin Mobile phone tester.”

BlackBerry 10 is just 15 days away…

    ‘… if you’re an eager Canadian, (excluding Quebec)… ”

    As is tradition. Haha.

      because quebec has a lot more rules and regulations

      RIP RIM!! 😀 🙂 😛 😀

    Hi, would love to be a tester.
    -because I can, love to be asked my opinion, love to give my opinion, and I am an older women and not afraid to say what I want and need!

  • Philippe Gaboury

    We keep saying we’re not Canadian in Quebec but people just don’t listen.

    • Blas

      Sure we do. That’s why you’re not included in any contests that us Canadians are eligible for.

    • Karendar

      No biggie, it’s just a promo for Blackberry phones after all. We’re not missing anything major. 😛

  • Slayer

    Quebec will get these promos when it stops being a socialist misandric province.

    • Karendar

      As opposed to being conservative woman beaters? 😉 I’ll take the former without the misandry please!

  • zed

    Stupid a$$ Qc regulations, for this and pretty much any other giveaway. Now, I don’t expect to actually win freebies, but at least to have the opportunity to enter if I should so desire. (not to mention all those unique tax differences!)

    Aaaaaanyway, on topic: the best part of this piece of news is that the phone ought to be out soon. Hopefully, RIM won’t screw it up with the pricing and availability, assuming the OS can hold its own.

    this was closed before the end of 2012. no more applications will be accepted to become testers in Canada through virgin mobile
