The ever-growing world of mobile music just got bigger. AT&T Inc. announced today the immediate availability of two new music applications – mSpot’s Make-UR-Tones and Remix — and plans to significantly expand offerings for Napster Mobile over-the-air downloads. Make-UR-Tones allows customers to customize ringtones by using their mobile phone, and the Remix application gives customers access to their PC-based music collections directly from their phone. The result for mobile music lovers is more freedom to listen to the songs they want, when they want, on their AT&T mobile phone.
mSpot Make-UR-Tones – With today’s launch of mSpot Make-UR-Tones, AT&T — the exclusive provider of the application — becomes the first national carrier to allow customers to easily use their wireless phone to create a ringtone from their favorite part of a song. The Make-UR-Tones application is designed to give users the flexibility to customize a one- to 30-second ringtone from a full song. AT&T’s Make-UR-Tones subscribers can enjoy exclusive access to more than 250,000 titles from music labels EMI Music, Universal Music Group, Warner Music Group, INgrooves and IRIS.
To use the application, AT&T customers simply download mSpot’s Make-UR-Tones from the AT&T MEdia Mall on their mobile phone, use the advanced search engine to select a song and then cut the part of the song they want to customize as their ringtone, up to 30 seconds, by using the application’s easy-to-use waveform editor. Make-UR-Tones lets users listen to the song while it’s being edited and preview the ringtone before downloading a copy to their phones.
The mSpot Make-UR-Tones is available for a monthly subscription of $6.99 for three ringtones. Additional customized ringtones can be purchased on an a la carte basis for $2.99. Make-UR-Tones is currently available for download on the Samsung SYNC, Samsung A737, Samsung A747 and the Motorola V3xx and will expand to additional phones in the near future.
mSpot Remix- AT&T is now offering a music-on-demand application for customers who want the ability to access and enjoy their PC-based music libraries from their mobile phone. Available today, mSpot Remix is the newest music application from AT&T Mobile Music and is available from AT&T MEdia Mall.
The mSpot Remix mobile player connects with a PC over the AT&T network,
providing access to stored songs and playlists. When a customer hits Play
from the mSpot Remix mobile player, Remix immediately starts playing the
song from the PC while downloading the entire track in the background.
Remix then saves the song to the phone’s memory card, so the customer has access to the song even when not connected to the network.
The mSpot Remix service is available for a monthly subscription of $9.99, which allows users to download 75 songs a month. AT&T also will offer a Remix booster pack for $2.99, which provides an additional 10 songs. Remix is compatible with the Samsung SYNC, the Samsung A737 and the LG SHINE.

Napster Mobile Coming to More AT&T Phones- Beginning this summer, more AT&T customers will be able to search a catalog of more than 5 million songs from their AT&T wireless phone, preview 30-second samples before they buy and download music directly to their phone while on the go, all with Napster Mobile. AT&T first announced Napster Mobile in November of last year with the launch of the SLM by Samsung. The company plans to expand the industry’s leading mobile music platform by making the service available to more than 12 million customers, beginning this summer. In addition to browsing and downloading music to their phone, AT&T customers will receive a copy of each song downloaded online from Napster.
AT&T offers more choices for mobile music than any other U.S. carrier and was the first carrier in the nation to provide the Napster To Go subscription music service, as well as DRM-free instant track deliveries to eMusic.
