[Mobiles] It's a Smaller World, After All

Oh, Bother. Eeyore's Got a Cell Phone.

Disney Mobile has begun selling phones and service through its Web site and by phone, officially launching the mobile virtual network operator service that promises parents a high degree of control over how much and when their children can use their wireless phones.

The family service plans start at $60 per month for 450 minutes and range as high as $250 per month for 4,500 minutes. All the family plans include two lines of service, and additional lines can be added for another $10 per month. The service requires a two-year contract, credit approval and is limited to nine phones per family account. All lines are subject to an activation fee: $35 for the first line and $25 for each additional line.

Sprint is the carrier for DM. More details at RCR News.
