METALLICA Music Tones Introduced By SPRINT

Sprint and Warner Bros. Records today announced that Sprint is the first wireless carrier to offer the songs of rock-music legends METALLICA as ringers. Sprint customers will have an exclusive opportunity to personalize their mobile phones with METALLICA's music by downloading Music Tones — ringers made from actual clips of the band's songs — direct from their Sprint PCS Vision Phones. As Sprint's July "Featured Artist," more than 20 Metallica Music Tones will be available for customers to choose from, including "Enter Sandman", "Fade to Black" and "For Whom the Bell Tolls".

"Sprint customers will be the first to get Metallica Music Tones on their phones," said Nancy Beaton, general manager — Music and Personalization, Sprint. "As the first carrier to offer Music Tones and now the first to offer these real-song ringers from METALLICA, Sprint leads the industry in offering the best music services to millions of customers across the United States."

METALLICA is one of the best-known rock bands in the world. Their 11 albums have sold more than 90 million copies over the past 24 years that the band has been together.

The METALLICA-Featured Artist site on Sprint PCS Vision is available through the Ringers Page on Sprint PCS Vision Phones. Customers can browse and purchase Metallica Music Tones from this site; sign up for the band's mobile messaging list; and check out their favorite ringers, screen savers, games and applications available on Sprint. To access the site, go to Menu/ Downloads/ Ringers/ Get New/ Metallica - Featured Artist. Sprint Music Tones are $2.50 each.
