We're starting a new VIP program at Android Forums to reward our best contributors. You'll get Ad-Free browsing, a special badge and user title, and access to some VIP-Only areas. You can become an Android Insider in one of two ways: Proving employment at a mobile carrier/manufacturer Posting a thread that becomes a news source Android Insiders Android Forums hosts all kinds of technology-related discussion, but among the most popular topics are support and help questions about Android Phones and other devices. Nobody is better positioned to knowledgeably answer these questions than employees of the companies who make these products. That's why we're offering "Android Insider" status to anyone who can prove to us that they're currently employed by one of the top carriers or manufacturers (Verizon, AT&T, Samsung, Google, etc...) Here is how you can apply: Click the "Contact Us" link at the bottom of this page Type "Android Insider" into the "Subject" Field Explain your company and position in the "Message" Field We'll get back to you with a specific request for validation in the form of an employee badge, social media links, or other proof. Once we can confirm your identity- you're in! Popular Threads The success of Android Forums depends on a fast-moving community that shares information as soon as it hits their screen. Only the most seasoned Android users can spot a small change that makes a big difference a mile away and we want to reward those contributions to the community. If you see and share a device update, app/game update, or post a generally helpful tip/trick/article on the forums that attracts a ton of attention, we'll happily place you in our exclusive Android Insider group. We're constantly on the prowl for top content, but if we overlook your worthy contribution, use the contact form on the bottom of the site to clue us in and we'll review it. What you get As part of this program, you'll get ad-free browsing, a special "Android Insider" badge, custom user title, and access to VIP areas. There may be other perks in the future, including T-Shirts and Giveaways. Inclusion in the program is based on our discretion and not guaranteed. Android Insider status may be revoked at any time but will otherwise be reviewed each year to make sure this exclusive group is a lean, mean, Android knowledge machine. Hope to see you on the inside!
