NEW YORK (Reuters) - Virgin Mobile USA said on Wednesday it has agreed to make Yahoo Inc.'s mobile services available to more than 4.6 million wireless customers.

Starting in early April, Yahoo Mail and Yahoo Messenger can be downloaded onto several Virgin Mobile handsets, and the applications will be preloaded on select phones in the future, Virgin Mobile said.

The two companies will make additional mobile services from Yahoo available on Virgin Mobile handsets in the coming months, including a range of SMS services such as search and messaging.
