Cricket adds unlimited music downloads to unlimited calling plan

Value-driven wireless provider Cricket has announced a new, unlimited mobile calling plan that has a bit of a musical twist. The new plan will offer unlimited calling, text messaging, and data, and include unlimited music downloads. Customers, using the company’s Muve Music service, will be able to download full music tracks from labels such as Universal, Warner, Sony, and EMI; users will also have unlimited access to ringtones and ringback tones.

“Cricket was the first to introduce an unlimited wireless rate plan and now we are the first to introduce a new unlimited wireless rate plan that includes unlimited music. With Muve Music, Cricket is bringing together the best of wireless and music in a way no one has ever done before,” said Doug Hutcheson, the company’s president and CEO.

The Samsung Suede will launch as the first Muve device and the accompanying Muve unlimited plan will retail for a paltry $55 per month. Cricket plans to debut both the device and the music service at the Consumer Electronics Show this January in Las Vegas.
