Sprint adds MySpace to its friends

Sprint is obviously feeling generous these days – it’s giving away free mobile access to MySpace Mobile on all web-enabled phones – which it claims is a first for any US operator – to coincide with the official launch of MySpace’s mobile site.

MySpace users will get all the usual goodies – including being able to edit MySpace profiles, view and add friends, post blogs and bulletins and send and receive MySpace messages – by clicking through from Sprint’s web portal on their mobiles. It’s worth noting it’s only free to Sprint’s data subscribers though.

MySpace has been signing with all manner of operators as it faces tough competition from the likes of Facebook. It doesn’t seem to be doing too badly though – it’s had one million visitors a day to its MySpace mobile site even though it’s still been in beta til now.
