Verizon Wireless and Sprint customers can now exchange picture and video messages
Posted on 26-Jul-2005 09:52 | Filed under: News



In a move that allows more than 70 million wireless customers to exchange picture and video messages with one another directly from their wireless camera phones, Verizon Wireless and Sprint have announced an inter- carrier Multimedia Messaging Service (MMS) agreement between the two companies.

Mobile 365 will provide the interoperability service for Verizon Wireless customers and VeriSign will provide the service for Sprint customers. Mobile 365 and VeriSign support the CDMA2000 1X network standard used by the two carriers.

Jim Straight, vice president of wireless, Internet and multimedia for Verizon Wireless, said: "Inter-carrier text messaging has proliferated in the marketplace since it was introduced a few years ago and we believe multimedia messaging between customers on different wireless networks has the same potential. Our customers across the country have embraced picture messaging, and now they can enjoy sending and receiving multimedia messages with Sprint's wireless customers."

Sprint customers can exchange multimedia messages with Verizon Wireless, Cingular, T-Mobile USA and Bell Mobility customers. Verizon Wireless customers can exchange multimedia messages with customers of Sprint, Cingular Wireless, Leap Wireless and U.S. Cellular.
