DURHAM, N.C. – Alltel Wireless is teaming up with Motricity to offer “ringback tones” for its customers.

The ringback tones are songs or sounds that will play while callers wait to be connected to customers. Selections range from rock to country and hip hop.

The service will be offered over Motricity’s Fuel content delivery platform. Motricity already maintains an electronic storefront for Alltel.

“Alltel Wireless continues to offer services that enable customers to live a mobile lifestyle that reflects their unique personality,” said Ryan Wuerch, Motricity’s chief executive officer. “Motricity is focused on helping companies like Alltel bring a mobile experience that is fun, easy and personalized and we are pleased that Alltel has again chosen Motricity as a strategic business partner.”
