Sprint Messenger Service Introduced
Posted: 20-Aug-2003 [Source: Sprint]

[New service enables customers to receive email on any phone and mass distribute text and voice messages.]

Overland Park, Kan. -- Sprint (NYSE: FON, PCS) has introduced Sprint MessengerSM, an Internet-based service that enables customers to manage their incoming and outgoing email and voice messages more efficiently, saving valuable time.

Sprint Messenger provides two convenient services: Email on the Go, which enables customers to receive their email messages on any phone; and One to Many Messaging, which sends a single voice or email message to a group of recipients.

With Email on the Go, customers can have email messages from multiple email accounts forwarded to any phone. When an email message is forwarded to a wireless phone, customers can read the first 160 characters as text, then press a single button to save, delete or have it read to them in its entirety using a text-to-speech engine. At the end of the message, the user has the option to save, reply to the sender or forward to someone else. When replying or forwarding, the user records a voice message that is automatically converted to a sound file and is sent to the recipient as an email attachment. Users also can filter incoming emails so that only messages from select individuals are forwarded to their phone.

Customers will benefit from Email on the Go because they have access to emails even when they don't have Internet access and their phone rings immediately when an incoming email arrives, so they won't waste time periodically logging on to the Internet to check for new email.

With One to Many Messaging, users can create a voice or email message and have it sent to a mass distribution list. A single message can be sent to virtually any communications device, including a phone, fax, email account, pager, PDA or instant messenger.

One to Many Messaging is ideal for coaches, soccer moms, church groups, school staff members, civic leaders - anyone who must reach a large group of people on any of their communications devices, eliminating the need to set up a phone tree or send multiple messages by phone, fax, email and pager.

"Sprint Messenger is an Internet-based messaging service that complements Sprint's portfolio of integrated products and services," said Steve Carter, vice president of marketing, Sprint LTD Consumer Markets Group. "Customers can import address books from existing email applications and databases so it's easy to get started and it enables mobile customers to stay connected."

Customers can conveniently set up and manage a Sprint Messenger account online where they can:

* Create a message

* Access an address book

* Select contact names

* Choose each or all delivery methods

* Select the emails to have sent to their phone

* Send a message

* Get immediate responses and status of messages sent in real time
