Sprint Nextel picture messages now headed to MySpace, other sites: Carrier’s deal with VeriSign to enable service

Sprint Nextel Corp. is teaming with VeriSign Inc. to enable subscribers to send photos and videos from their phones to popular social media sites.
The offering uses VeriSign’s Xoomerang platform to allow users to upload images from more than 30 Sprint phones to MySpace, Photobucket and YouTube. The service is free for subscribers with Sprint Picture Mail, and the carrier said it plans to add other online communities in the near future.
Verizon Wireless last week unveiled a similar service with Ontela, a Seattle startup. The $3-a-month downloadable application automatically sends pictures from phones directly to users’ Photobucket accounts. Meanwhile, T-Mobile USA last week announced a feature that enables users to send photos from phones directly to digital picture frames.
