Sprint has changed the pricing for its music store and will charge only $0.99 for each song, same as the iTunes Music Store. According to Sprint, it offers 1.5 million songs in the Sprint Music Store for over-the-air downloads directly to mobile phones. Along with the changed fees, Sprint is also announcing two new data plans that focus specifically on music. For $15 per month, subscribers will have access to 10 commercial-free radio channels, weekly music-related video programming, and the $0.99-per-song plan. For $20, Sprint adds another 40 commercial-free radio channels and Sprint TV channel that's dedicated to music videos and more. To kick-start the promotion, Sprint is offering 10 different free songs per week through partnerships with independent labels. The new music plan also allows users to manage their music more easily by permitting transfers between PCs and phone via USB.
Yeah, "Go Sprint!"...charge rates competitive to other outlets instead of gashing us with ridiculous prices.
OK, what is the problem?!
Tell me what the problem is with someone doing a wireless download of mp3's from almost anywhere for $.99? TELL ME!
To little to late for me
