The Carphone Warehouse today unveiled its new MyMobileLife service aiming to give mobile phone users access to a range of services as well as free instant messaging using any of the popular IM clients.
Some services, including the instant messaging, will be free, such as news from the BBC, daily horoscopes, and TV listings. Other premium services will also be introduced including a £9.99 per year ‘near live’ comprehensive football results and events service. You can build a favourite team list of as many teams as you like and every time one of those teams scores a goal or has a goal scored against them, makes a substitution, has a player booked or sent off, the subscriber will be alerted by the service.
It’s also possible to shop at selected retailers using your phone and check on eBay auctions.
In time, additional services will be launched including banking and online cinema ticket purchase.
Consumers can register for MyMobileLife by texting ‘Life’ to 81444 or by visiting www.mymobilelife.co.uk
