San Rafael, CA and Warren, NJ -- Jumbuck Entertainment Ltd, the world's leading provider of user-driven wireless community and social networking services, has signed an agreement with Virgin Mobile USA, the leading wireless youth network, for Jumbuck to become the carrier's exclusive provider of WAP- and Java-based chat services. As a result, Virgin Mobile customers will have access to the world's largest mobile chat community.

Under the new agreement, Jumbuck's popular Power Chat service, now available on over 40 carriers globally, is now accessible to Virgin Mobile's four million customers. Virgin Mobile has also launched Jumbuck's new "Text Chat" SMS chat service on Virgin Mobile (common short code: TXTCHT or 898 248), where users can express themselves in a fun, dynamic and secure environment.
Virgin Mobile USA Vice President of Mobile Data Services, Dominick Tolli, commented: "Enabling our customers to communicate instantly with such a large established global community was most beneficial for us. We've had great customer feedback on these services as well."
"We are extremely pleased to be working with Virgin Mobile USA," said Jumbuck CEO Olivia Hilton. "Virgin Mobile USA is a wireless service provider that truly recognizes the importance of community applications for its users. Through our experience and ability to constantly innovate, we look forward to drawing new customers into our communities and driving revenues for Virgin Mobile."
Over the coming months, and as part of the agreement, Jumbuck will also launch its popular Fast Flirting and Jumbuck Island communities on Virgin Mobile USA.
