Just SMS to StarHub, and you will get what you want


Singapore, 13 July 2000 -- Consumers can now download ‘cool’ ring tones and funky icons when they sign up for StarHub mobile services. To get this service, all you need is a StarHub mobile subscription and a selected Nokia mobile phone. The phone models include 3210, 6150, 7110, 8210 & 8850.


Unlike the usual practice of downloading this service from the website, StarHub customers can select the ring tone or icon/logo of their choice to be downloaded to the selected Nokia phones by sending a Short Messaging Services (SMS) message to StarHub with the appropriate keywords. At present, there are no registration, subscription and download fees, except for a five cents charge for sending the SMS. Essentially, this means that StarHub customers can hear the ring tones and view the icons/logos at their convenience and without any hassle.


Said Mr Wee Way Kiat, General Manger, Mobility, StarHub, " StarHub is very pleased to offer the ring tone and icon/logo download service to all StarHub customers who have Nokia mobile phones. We believe the young, fun-loving and SMS savvy mobile phone users will enjoy the service tremendously. With this service, StarHub will again deliver on its promise to provide innovative and high-quality SMS services to StarHub customers."


StarHub customers will be able to hear and see the different categories of ring tones like Pop, Rock, Classical and Movie themes, and the different categories of icons/logos respectively at the StarHub website (https//www.starhub.com) from next week. New and refreshing ring tones and icons/logos will be added regularly.
