Mobile ESPN has begun online sales of their phone and service today. It is available nationwide on the MVNO's website, and will work wherever Sprint has EV-DO service. The phone, a black Sanyo MM-9000 will cost $500, but comes with a $100 mail-in rebate. Service too, is more expensive than typical pre- or post- paid pricing because it include unlimited access to ESPN application as well as 35 MB of additional data, 100 text messages unlimited night / weekend calling. Plans range from $65 per month for 450 minutes to $225 for 4000. Mobile ESPN will launch in stores at the next Superbowl, in February.

is it just me, or is this a really expensive way to find out about sports? couldn't you just get a plan that has an internet package and look up espn.com? I guess if you couldn't possibly live 10 minutes without streaming video of ARod, this could get you your fix, but jeez.
Even surfing the web on my Treo it's crappy at best to search around for sports scores. The service on the Mobile ESPN is totally integrated and streamlined for delivery to a phone. you gotta try it. It's not only the scores, alerts & video - there's ...

not THAT bad

really the only OUTRAGEOUS cost is for the phone... figure a plan in the 400-500 minute range with any of the major companies is 40 a month... add your 100 text messages they include is 3-5 more a month, 35MB of data is another 5-10... so for that service youre looking at $55 a month anyways, plus I'm sure some or most of the ESPN content will be exclusive to the service so quit complaining all we do here is look for things that are wrong
Until people try the service and realize that it's a sports fan's dream they just don't get it. If you're a REAL fan of any sport it's completely worth every penny. That's why I'm so psyched that I can give people a discount and freebies on it.

Who's this going to appeal to...

I agree. What a ripoff. 😡
I just think it's dissapointing that ESPN partnered with Sprint! ! ! I'm not all that big a fan of Sprint plus I'm sick of seeing these 450min plans, absolute minimum of 600.
I'm w/Cingular, and I don't hesitate to use my phone during the daytime. Pl...
Are you kidding me? There are plenty of people with plenty of $$ to spend on somthing like this. I bet that 2 out of the 3 of you all have camera phones. With that I bet you use the internet on your phone too. Lets be serious now, these are all ad...

When will ESPN be listed under the "Carriers?"

When it has a million subscribers

the only way i'd buy this is if it could be activated on a regular sprint plan.

espn mobile plans are the dumbest thing since earthlink wireless offered treo650s for 100 bucks
Hey, at least Earthlink had a competitive price....

$400 for the Sanyo 9000? Feels a little steep.
