MySpace Launches Mobile Services With Cingular Wireless
MySpace.com has announced an exclusive partnership to offer enhanced MySpace functionality to Cingular customers via their mobile phones. This is MySpace's largest-scale mobile partnership to date and gives Cingular's customers exclusive access to MySpace Mobile's tool set including the ability to edit MySpace profiles, view and add friends, post photos and blogs, send and receive MySpace messages, and more all from the mobile phone.

Available on select handsets, MySpace Mobile allows customers to select photos stored on their mobile device and upload them to their MySpace profile.

Consumers can also send messages to their MySpace friends, read and reply to messages sent to them, as well as view and manage friend requests from their handsets.

The platform allows basic friend searches giving users the opportunity to "click-to-add "friends into their network.

New blog entries can be created while on the go, and comments to other people's blogs are also enabled through the mobile phone.

Users have the ability to view the friend list of any MySpace profile. The Friend list contains a text listing of the friends, which when selected would show the profile picture along with a link to that user's MySpace page and the ability to add the friend to your contact list for quick bookmarking.

To start using the MySpace application Cingular users must send a SMS with the word MYSPACE to 386 (FUN) to get the MySpace Mobile application on their wireless phones. The cost is US$2.99 per month plus standard data usage charges.

In addition to the full range of new MySpace Mobile features, Cingular customers can still receive real time MySpace Mobile Alerts on their handsets which notify them, via a text message, when they receive postings to their MySpace page, such as updates or comments posted to their blog, friend invites, mail messages, comments to pictures, new bulletins and/or online status. MySpace Mobile Alerts have been available to Cingular customers since March 2006 and, to date, more than 75 million alerts have been received on Cingular handsets.
