Sprint earlier this week deployed a major update to their Music Store. The Sprint Music Store now carries features designed to allow it to have comparative advantage over Apple’s iTunes.
The most major feature added is Song Recovery. Using Song Recovery, customers can re-download lost or deleted music. Previously Sprint followed Apple’s lead and created a wall of separation between the content license and content provider, requiring customers to re-purchase music that was erased. However, the service currently is limited to one re-download per song purchased.
This week Sprint also announced a special pricing promotion on Music Store content. From now until November 15th, every time you purchase two songs on the Sprint Music Store, the third song is then free (making the per-song cost $1.67).
The update is available to all Sprint Music Store phones, and will be installed automatically upon launching Music Store from the handset.
