Today Verizon Wireless announced a new partnership with Real's Rhapsody music service and MTV. For $15 per month, subscribers to Verizon's V CAST Music with Rhapsody service will have unlimited access to Rhapsody's 5 million songs both online and via their phones. Over-the-air downloads will still cost $1.99, but you'll be able to download one version for your phone, as well as an unprotected master file for your PC that you can burn to CDs and play on multiple machines or devices. Subscribers to the service can also download tracks directly from Rhapsody to their PCs for 99 cents. These tracks are also free of DRM and can be burned or played on or transferred to multiple machines. The service also allows users to manage their purchases and library with Real's software. V CAST Music with Rhapsody is available on V CAST-compatible phones beginning today.

Who cares?

Wow, $15 a month for the crappiest music download service and the crappiest song database. Thanks, but no thanks. I'll stick with what I do... load my music onto a card or better yet, just use my ipod.
I think the selection is quite decent (for my taste in music, anyway), so I'm actually glad that this is finally available. I was planning on getting a Rhapsody membership, anyway, so I figured that I'd might as well tack it onto my VZW service.
Wow!! On top of the $15/month, you still gotta pay $1.99 per song if purchased from your phone? And redownload that same song again onto your computer.
This is ridiculous, why dont they take cues from Apple. They charge the same $0.99 if purchased f...
