Sprint brings The Sopranos mobile content
Sprint will make fans of The Sopranos happy this season. The company announced a partnership with HBO to bring ring tones, screen savers and other content from the TV series to Sprint PCS Vision customers

"Mobile customers look to their phones as a way to be entertained and say something about their personality, as well as to make a phone call. The Sopranos is one of the most popular, talked-about television series in history, and Sprint is excited to offer our customers a part of that history," said Jeff Hallock, vice president of consumer product marketing for Sprint.

Creator David Chase's drama series tells the story of Tony Soprano, a modern-day mob boss and his family. The Sopranos stars Emmy-winners James Gandolfini as Tony Soprano and Edie Falco as Tony's wife Carmela, plus Lorraine Bracco as therapist Dr. Jennifer Melfi, Michael Imperioli as Tony's nephew Christopher Moltisanti and Dominic Chianese as Uncle Junior. Also returning to the series are regulars Drea de Matteo as Adriana, Robert Iler as Anthony Soprano, Jr., Jamie-Lynn DiScala as Meadow Soprano, Tony Sirico as Paulie Walnuts and Steven Van Zandt as Silvio Dante.

A mix of free and premium downloadable content from the TV series will be available for a limited period of exclusivity on select Java-enabled Sprint PCS Vision Phones, and will include:

  • The Sopranos branded portal on the Sprint PCS Vision platform
  • J2ME The Sopranos Trivia game: Players can test their show knowledge in this fast-paced trivia game, with questions from all five seasons of the TV series, and bonus "speed round" after each new episode. Difficulty in levels of questions varies from Soldier (easy) to Capo (medium) to Boss (difficult). The game will cost US$3.99 for 60 days
  • Ringtones: polyphonic theme song (US$1.50 per ringtone)
  • Screen Savers: logo and images of the cast (US$1.00-US$2.00 per screen saver)
  • Browseable content including episode previews and recaps, show replay schedule, polls and alerts
