09.13.04 Ringtones

With a possible billion-dollar windfall at stake, U.S. music companies are eagerly awaiting the full-blown development of the stateside ringtone market.

But the U.S. appetite for ringtones has not developed as quickly as in other markets, and no company has emerged to do for ringtones what Apple has done for digital downloads with its iTunes/iPod campaign.

A big part of the responsibility for building the market falls to the five major U.S. carriers -- Verizon, Sprint, Cingular/AT&T Wireless, T-Mobile and Nextel -- which control the pipeline to their customers.

However, it is generally held that mobile music promotions are more effective when some combination of the carriers, handset manufacturers, ringtone aggregators (like Infospace Mobile, Zingy and Faith West) and record labels co-market their products. more

NotePage sales from September 11, 2004 will be donated to charities.

A judge granted Verizon Wireless a permanent injunction against a Rhode Island man accused of sending millions of unsolicited text-message advertisements to cell phone customers in four states. The injunction Friday in federal court in Trenton, N.J., bans Jacob Brown from sending any more “spam” text messages. Verizon sued Brown in June after identifying him as the leader of a ring that sent the messages.

The messages were sent over the last several months to cell users in California, New Jersey, Massachusetts and Rhode Island. They advertised mortgage loans, products for losing weight, even adult Web sites. Officials with Bedminster, N.J.-based Verizon said Brown and his cohorts sent bulk text-messages to cell phones by disguising their identities and using an automatic telephone dialing system.

‘I D4C U’ Declaring 'I Divorce You' by Mail or Mobile Phone Is Easy for Muslim Men — Too Easy, Say Women

In a marriage between a centuries-old custom and the latest in technology, some Muslim men are dumping their wives by simply texting, "I d4c U" three times to their cell phones. But now Muslim wives want more than the traditional three degrees of separation.
