Cingular launches MMS - flat fee until end of the year
Cingular Wireless introduced its Multimedia Messaging (MMS) service. Cingular's MMS lets its customers shoot and add photos, text, graphics, music, video and voice to send "living" messages instantly to virtually any e-mail address or mobile phone.

"Our goal was to make MMS simple so that anyone can capture those unplanned moments and send them - from their phone - quickly and easily," said Marc Lefar, chief marketing officer for Cingular Wireless. "You don't have to be a technology wizard to use our service and start enjoying the fun and functionality of MMS."

Cingular MMS customers can send messages instantly from their wireless phone to any email address and most mobile phones regardless of whether they are Cingular users or not. If a person can receive text messages from a Cingular customer today, they can now receive a MMS message as well.

Two of these phones, the Nokia 3600 and Sony Ericsson T616, have integrated cameras. Cingular has a wide array of other MMS capable phones for sale today from Nokia (3300, 3595, 3600, 6200, and 6800), Sony Ericsson (Sony Ericsson T226 and T616), and Siemens (S56 and SL56).

Until 11th January 11 2004, Cingular will be offering unlimited MMS messaging for three months for US$2.99 per month. After that date, customers will pay per message for all messages sent and received based on one of the following competitive pricing plans:

US$0.25 per message, no monthly charge
US$2.99 per month; 20 messages, US$0.25 per additional message
US$4.99 per month; 40 messages, Us$0.20 per additional message

Cingular does not charge customers for airtime or kilobytes - just a flat charge for each message sent and received. Additionally, Cingular only charges for a single message when the message is sent to multiple email addresses or mobile numbers.

Cingular MMS customers will also be able to use MMS freely while traveling in the U.S., even while roaming on other GSM networks. And, there are no additional charges for MMS while roaming in the U.S. Cingular customers will pay the same rate to use MMS in their home area as they will while roaming nationwide.
