New Portal Lets You Keep What You Buy
Jan 31, 2006, 1:56 PM by (staff)
Summus today launched Oasys Mobile, a portal that lets subscribers purchase ringtones, games and other content for their phones. Although Oasys allows customers to purchase content on an item by item basis, those who subscribe to the portal will be offered an additional bonus. Content they purchase will be available for re-download, even if the customer purchases a new handset or even switches carriers for as long as customers continue to subscribe. Oasys is also beta testing phone book backup as a free service to subscribers with select handsets. Currently Oasys works with Cingular, T-Mobile and Sprint. The company expects to sign with Verizon shortly.
