[Inter-carrier MMS agreements between T-Mobile and Sprint as well as Cingular and Sprint PCS, T-Mobile, Verizon Wireless, Leap Wireless and US Cellular announced.]
Bellevue, WA; Atlanta, GA -- T-Mobile today announced an agreement with Cingular Wireless and Sprint PCS to offer intercarrier Multimedia Messaging Service (MMS). This means T-Mobile and Cingular customers and T-Mobile and Sprint PCS customers now can exchange picture and short video messages, including text and audio, with each other directly from their MMS-enabled wireless phones.
Cingular customers can exchange pictures and short video messages, including text and audio, with any Cingular, Sprint, T-Mobile, Verizon Wireless, Leap Wireless and US Cellular customer, who has an MMS-enabled device, as well as any email address. With Intercarrier Multimedia Messaging Service, Cingular customers have access to the broadest wireless MMS community, representing 80 percent of wireless subscribers in the U.S.
Interoperability is great news for all wireless customers as well as the wireless industry as it dramatically expands the mobile universe of family and friends with whom wireless users can share photos and videos. In other words, the wireless world just got a lot easier to navigate. All that's needed is an MMS-capable phone and the desire to share.
