Mobile dating heats up for Valentines day

Feb 08 2005 - 12:55 PM ET | In The News
With Valentines day less than a week away, mobile services are busy trying to find love... and money. Sprint has announced access to two mobile dating services: and Mobile. Both services allow users to hook up, most often through text messages. Available to users of all carriers, CallWave is marketing its cell phone screening service as a way for ladies to weed out would be daters: bq. The CallWave phone number with audio call screening lets anyone avoid unwanted invitations altogether...or at least listen to the offer (front row tickets to Jack Johnson, or help him organize his closet) before taking the call. We expect a few more similar offerings to be promoted by the top carriers in the days leading up to the 14th.
