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.

If I had money I would invest....

I just talked to customer service and was told they are in the process of making it available for customers to upload phonebooks to the "locker system". What a freaking great idea. People have been waiting for something like this. I know that carriers have it, but to be able to upload your phonebook if you switch carriers is the awsome part. I work for an agent of Cingular and time after time people dont switch because they have 250 numbers in thier phonebook. If this really works then Kudos to them. Also Ringtones are expensive to replace and would make it very cost effective to store your ringtones to thier site incase something happens to your phone. BUT just for the simple fact you can upload phonebooks and switch carriers I believe will...
