  • CDMA is not a preferred technology for youth as to be a Virgin one need to get a CDMA handset. Virgin did not introduce any great CDMA handset which can attract youths.

  • Virgin Mobile Internet plans are not really cheap, often hidden with daily rentals.

  • Virgin’s foray into data card market never works because TTSL never wanted to give competition to its own Photon+. No cheap tariff for youth certainly gives a thumbs down!

For virgin to compete with any of these , the first and foremost thing it will have to do is establish

common man.

Virgin should

make more durable as well as attractive and

stylish phones. As in India , potential customers are youngsters .

So , phones must be attractive and have smart

features.

  • These qualities are necessary to cope up with the leading companies like samsung , Nokia , Apple.
