Commenting on the partnership, Virgin Mobile India chief officer (handsets and VAS) Deval Parikh said, “With more and more online youth community logging onto social networking sites, we wanted to make this service available to our customers on a broad set of handsets. We are thrilled to be the first to have partnered with MySpace in the Indian mobile service space to make this service accessible to Virgin Mobile customers.”

 
This deal further adds an application on vBytes, Virgin Mobile’s WAP services as users can access MySpace by simply clicking the MySpace link on vBytes and logging in the user ID and password. Also new users can begin by creating a fresh id and password.

“MySpace and Virgin Mobile users in India will love having the freedom and convenience of accessing their social network while they’re on the go. With India being the fastest growing wireless/mobile market, it is a priority for us to provide our users in India access to their MySpace network in ways that fit their lifestyle. Virgin Mobile is an ideal partner that will help us deliver on that strategy in India,” added MySpace VP and GM – Mobile John Faith.


To access vbytes, users will need to pay a daily charge of Rs 5.
