Cricket Communications Inc., a leading provider of innovative and value-driven wireless services and a wholly owned subsidiary of Leap Wireless International, Inc., announced that Muve Music is now available for purchase in Tulsa and all Cricket markets across the nation.
First announced in December of 2010 and unveiled at the 2011 International CES Show in January, Muve Music is the first wireless rate plan that includes unlimited talk, text, Web and music downloads to the mobile phone. Muve Music’s ever-growing music library features artists from the 55 records labels of the four major music companies: Universal Music Group, Warner Music Group, Sony Music Entertainment and EMI Music, as well as music from more than 50 countries through indie aggregator IODA.
Muve Music was designed exclusively for the mobile phone and is easily accessed through the Muve Music icon on the phone. This is the first and only music experience designed specifically for a mobile phone. Once inside Muve Music, customers can quickly search for and download songs and even entire albums in just seconds. Timothy Orr with Cellular Repair Solutions, a Cricket dealer for four years, explains, “The edge Muve Music has over the Internet and iTunes is that you can get any song you want and not have to pay for that song.” Now you can listen to all the music you want, anywhere you want – plus create ringtones and set ringback tones. The “Get Social” feature lets Muve Music customers send text messages and share music with other Muve Music customers.
“We are excited to bring Muve Music to Tulsa so customers can experience a simple, affordable way to listen to music on the go,” said Hayley Schaberg, district director of Cricket Communications. “Muve Music brings the functionality that resides on many online digital music services to the palm of the customer’s hand. The service also delivers innovative new features and functionality that only a wireless network and true mobile offering can provide. With Cricket’s new service there are no cables, no drivers, no synching and no complexity.”
Stuart Wiley, store manager of Mojo Mobile, is impressed with the new service. “Everything I searched for was available, including local music. There are millions of choices – current music library size is four to eight million songs and growing – and most can be converted to ringtones.” Visit Mojo Mobile’s website at www.getmojomobile.com.
Valarie Hinshaw at WOW Telecommunications in Sand Springs, a Cricket dealer since 1999, adds, “Headsets and accessories truly improve the quality of the music.” Brad Naifeh at The Cellular Store says that this service is superior because it also offers nationwide service, and it is all available for a low monthly cost.
Several locations in Tulsa and the surrounding areas are premiere Cricket dealers: Cellular Repair Solutions, 2030 E. Pine St.; WOW Telecommunications in Sand Springs; The Cellular Store at 61st and Mingo; National Communications at 69th and Lewis; Platinum Communications in Sapulpa; and Mojo Mobile at Admiral and Sheridan, 2305 W.
