Alltel iTunes-based music

Wireless carrier Alltel has launched a new music service for its network based on iTunes, an announcement reveals. The service, called nuTsie, lets users listen to music from their iTunes playlists on a variety of phones sold by Alltel. Unlike existing intermediary sync programs, the service additionally gives people the option of listening to music based on recommendations, and viewing playlists created by other users and members of the nuTsie development team.

Subscriptions to nuTsie are being sold through the carrier's Alltel Shop feature, and cost $5 per month, or $20 for a year. Over 10 phones support the technology, including Motorola's RAZR2 V9m, LG's AX8600, and Samsung's Hue. Compatibility is expected to grow within the next several months.

    Great idea!!

    I think that this is a great idea for people who have phones already or are on other networks. Its subscription and you get to use your iTunes music (not really but sort of :-) ). so now Apple does not have to do subscription and does not have to worrry about tinie sounding music on cheap phones.

    Neat.

    PS, sorry if this double posts.

    Just a thought,

    Nutsie?

    WTF? Who would ever name a new service or product that? How about whAcko? That also happened to be one of the buzzard guards in Disney's Robinhood (that was one of my son's favorite videos when he was 3)...

    this seems stupid

    You're subscribing to a service to listen to your own music? And you still have to pay data charges. h***, this isn't much cheaper than regular music subscription services, where you can access a much wider variety of music.

    Alltel?

    Alltel?

    Is this the same Alltel that's getting bought out by Verizon in a couple months? Nothing but smooth sailing in the future...

    Yeah, right...
