WARREN, N.J. -- February 25, 2013

Given the ongoing demand from consumers for speed, power and value in
wireless, Virgin Mobile USA is now offering 4G LTE^1 service to its
No-Contract customers. Virgin Mobile adds Galaxy Victory™ 4G LTE  from Samsung
Telecommunications America (Samsung Mobile), the No. 1 mobile phone provider
in the United States and the No. 1 smartphone provider worldwide^2, to its
all-smartphone lineup.

Savvy speed enthusiasts will enjoy the cutting-edge technology, high-speed^3
Web browsing and amazing value of this Android™ device with Virgin Mobile’s
No-Contract^4  Beyond Talk unlimited data and messaging plans^5 that start at
$35 per month. Samsung Galaxy Victory 4G LTE is available today in gray for
$299.99 [excluding taxes] only atvirginmobileusa.com and will then roll out
to national retail and participating dealers in mid-March.

“With the phones customers want, unlimited data and messaging included on all
plans, and now 4G LTE capable devices, we continue to provoke customers to ask
themselves why they haven’t switched from postpaid to a better deal with
Virgin Mobile,” said Mark Lederman, director, Virgin Mobile USA.

a postpaid experience without a contract and loaded with Android™ 4.1 Jelly
Bean, which brings stunning graphical capabilities and an upgraded Google Now™
service, including contextual search. S Beam™ lets you quickly share large
video files, photos, documents and more just by tapping the back of two S
Beam-enabled devices together^6.

touchscreen display. Behind the scenes, a 1.2GHz dual-core processor handles
with ease whatever you can throw at it. Other features include:
