Alltel Lets Phones Sync Music from PCs Over the Air

Alltel announced a new service today that will allow subscribers to wirelessly sync music stored on their PCs to their mobile phones. Customers have to subscribe to the service, for $3.99 per month, and download a client to their PC. Once they do, they can use the mSpot Remix mobile player on their phones to connect with their PC and begin streaming and downloading songs and playlists through Alltel's wireless network. The songs are then saved to the phone's memory card so they can be played later. The songs must be free of DRM protections, and the Motorola Z6m is the only handset that works with the service for now. Alltel will make more handsets compatible with the service throughout 2008.

What an insane thing to pay for

So let's see... you own the music, you own the phone, and you want to move the music files about 3 feet from one to the other. I'd go with:

1) A USB cable
2) A Wi-Fi Connection
3) A Bluetooth Connection

... or pretty much anything BESIDES paying $4 a month and sending the stuff out over the internet and back through a cell network.

Oh wait, you can't do anything else, because the carrier has crippled your phone from having basic, no-brainer features like a working USB port.

All the carriers do stuff like this, and we shouldn't praise them for these kinds of "services" which are really just rackets.
