Replying to:  Historical Handset Restrictions Make this Unattractive by psuser   Jan 5, 2006, 2:28 PM

i don't think you quite understand

You don't have to buy the song for $2 a piece. It's only $2 if you want the song sent to your PC and your phone.

Okay so you have to buy a memory card to transfer music, big whoop. Everyone who listens to mp3s on their phone has a memory card so that's not a big deal at all. Why do you think that's such a big deal?

Included in the $15 charge? You do know for each time a song is downloaded, they have to send a royalty check to that record label. If VZW were to do that, you would see a lot of freeriding and that's not good economics. Besides, this service will compete with iTunes and the operational business model of VZW Music is almost identical with iTunes. Since iTunes is successful, why change the business model?

I think you are just a VZW hater ... it's okay, everyone hates on the most successful company. If you don't like it you don't have to get it. Besides, based on the demand elasticity of this good, I'm sure it's going to capture a good portion of the market.
