Sprint and Phone.com, Inc announced today that Sprint PCS will use Phone.com's MyPhone™ to power its wireless web email service. This solution enables Sprint PCS to bring its customers advanced email messaging directly on their Wireless Web enabled handsets and via Sprint's PCS Web site at www.sprintpcs.com. Sprint PCS, the nation's fastest-growing wireless service provider, is deploying wireless email this week to its nearly 7 million customers nationwide. Phone.com will act as an Application Service Provider (ASP) to help Sprint achieve this rapid time to market.

"Customers' expectations of their Sprint PCS service capabilities will be changing radically as we roll out exciting new services such as Wireless Email," said Keith Paglusch, senior vice president of Operations for Sprint PCS. "Wireless Web Messaging will allow our customers to easily review, respond and compose messages on the move, nationwide."

"We are pleased that Sprint PCS has chosen to enhance its Wireless Web service with additional Phone.com products. As an existing UP.Link server customer, Sprint can seamlessly integrate the MyPhone email solution with the UP.Link infrastructure," said Alain Rossmann, chairman and chief executive officer of Phone.com. "The MyPhone email technology, derived from our recent acquisition of Onebox.com, allows Sprint to quickly provide their subscribers with a proven and scalable mobile email solution."

The proven and underlying UP.Link™ Server software has been licensed by over 60 wireless operators worldwide. The UP.Link gives Sprint a secure basis on which to build its personalized mobile portal.
