Jumbuck Entertainment announced that, as a result of an agreement with Virgin Mobile USA, it has become the carrier's exclusive provider of WAP and Java-based chat services. This will give Virgin Mobile customers access to one of the largest mobile chat communities in the world.
For the past year, Jumbuck has been providing Virgin Mobile access to its chat community through a customized Java application known as 'Chat Park.' Under the new agreement, Jumbuck's popular Power Chat service, available on over 40 carriers globally, is now accessible to Virgin Mobile's customers. Virgin Mobile has also launched Jumbuck's new 'Text Chat' SMS chat service.
"Enabling our customers to communicate instantly with such a large established global community was most beneficial for us. We've had great customer feedback on these services as well," commented Dominick Tolli, Vice President of Mobile Data Services, Virgin Mobile USA.
"We are extremely pleased to be working with Virgin Mobile USA," said Jumbuck CEO Olivia Hilton. "Virgin Mobile USA is a wireless service provider that truly recognizes the importance of community applications for its users. Through our experience and ability to constantly innovate, we look forward to drawing new customers into our communities and driving revenues for Virgin Mobile."
Over the coming months, Jumbuck will also launch its popular Fast Flirting and Jumbuck Island communities on Virgin Mobile USA.
