AT&T's no contract subsidiary Cricket Wireless will begin offering the Deezer streaming music service to its wireless phone customers starting on January 31. It will be the first time that Deezer will be available to US mobile phone users.
Deezer will replace Cricket's own Muve Music service on February 7 but will offer all of its CDMA network users a free trial to access Deezer's library of 32 million songs and more than 30,000 Internet radio stations until March 31. Cricket customers who signed up for the Muve service and switch to both Deezer and Cricket's new GSM network will get two more months of free Deezer access. Cricket added:
Muve customers who switch and sign up for the extended free trial and download the Deezer app will also be able to transfer their existing music libraries and playlists right to the app so they can keep listening to the music they love during the trial period and for as long as they remain subscribed to the paid service.
All new and existing Cricket customers on the new LTE network are also eligible for a minimum 15-day free trial of Deezer. After the free trial period, Cricket customers will be automatically billed only $6/per month for Deezer from Cricket unless canceled – that's $4 less than other premium services.
