Vancouver, BC, March 8, 2006--(T-Net)--From Andrea in Arkansas to James in Jacksonville, Alltel customers can now chat with cool people from across the US and around the world on their mobile phone.
Alltel, owner of America’s largest wireless network with more than 10 million customers in 34 states, and AirG, the global leader in powering mobile communities and wireless social networking, announced today the launch of Coolchat, a wireless social networking community now available on Alltel mobile phones.
Coolchat lets Alltel customers chat, make new friends, and participate in fun promotions and contests using a combination of product features such as instant messaging, photo profiles, powerful search tools, and public and private messaging lounges.
“We are pleased to be working with Alltel to define a new way for Alltel customers to communicate with Coolchat, the coolest social network on mobile phones,” commented Frederick Ghahramani, director, AirG. “Although being cool is not a prerequisite to using Coolchat, we guarantee that those who do are among the most fascinating mobile customers in the U.S.”
Since 2001, AirG has supplied a series of community products to Alltel including games and messaging applications on the Alltel Axcess Wireless Web service. Coolchat will be available on a series of multimedia mobile handsets that support the wireless web and BREW, including the new Motorola RAZR V3c and Kyocera Slider.
AirG will provide its end-to-end mobile community solution for Coolchat across multiple wireless platforms, as well as all back-end billing integrations, reporting, 24x7x365 customer support and monitoring, turnkey promotions and contests, and a direct inter-connect with AirG’s established community of over seven million users across 86 mobile operators and media companies globally.
Coolchat is available to all Alltel mobile customers with wireless web or BREW enabled handsets, and can be accessed by going to the Axcess Web portal on their phones.
