"Cell"ebrate College Pride and the Fall Sports Season with Your Phone

NEW YORK--(Collegiate Presswire - August 28, 2006) - According to research firm M:Metrics, cell phone users between the ages of 18 and 24 are twice as likely to download a new ringtone as other mobile phone subscribers. College students are the most prolific users of mobile content, and customized school ringtones and logos are the latest trend in mobile and school spirit trends.

As students move into college dorms and return to campus for fall, they are looking for new ways to show their school spirit. Students and alums alike agree that whether they're an Orangeman, an Aggie or a Sun Devil at heart, customizing their cell phone is a fun way to show school pride and support their team this season. Currently, University of Texas fans have dominated college logo downloads, and Army's "Brave old Army" ringtone tops Notre Dame's "Victory" by 25 percent.
