Cricket Muve Music Allows for Unlimited Song Downloads for $55 Per Month

We've heard about Cricket's Muve Music in the past, and the idea is the same as other subscription-based music services before: you pay a certain amount per month, and you get an unlimited amount of songs to download. Of course, with that kind of deal, there's always some form of protection involved, and with this new service from Cricket, it's no different. However, unlike the other services, even the ones that are tied to a phone, it's an extra charge per month. Not with Cricket's Muve Music.

The idea behind the service is to provide the unlimited music downloads, all the while charging the owner for the wireless monthly charge, and nothing more. The result? $55 per month will get you unlimited talk, text, picture messages, data back-up, and unlimited web. Basically, unlimited everything that most people use on a day-to-day basis, but with an unlimited amount of music to download. Check out the full press release for more information.
