With more than one million songs available for download, V CAST Music offers customers the most song choices of any over-the-air music service in the country. Thanks to the Motorola RAZR V3m's optional 1 GB removable microSDTM memory, customers can load up their phone with all their favorite jams from well-known and independent artists. The V CAST Music store lets customers browse, preview, download and play high-quality digital music from their phones or in the Verizon Wireless V CAST Music online store.
The distinctively slim Motorola RAZR V3m also supports V CAST, the nation's first wireless broadband multimedia service for consumers that delivers high-quality video from today's hottest content providers and 3D games right in the palms of customers' hands.
"The first RAZR to support over-the-air music downloading, the Motorola RAZR V3m is another proof point in our continuing commitment to provide 'must-have' handsets," said Mark Shockley, vice president of sales, Mobile Devices, Motorola, Inc.

V CAST and V CAST Music are powered by Verizon Wireless' EV-DO network, the most award-winning high-speed wireless broadband network in the nation, currently available to more than 150 million Americans coast to coast. Customers need a V CAST-enabled phone and a subscription to a V CAST VPak, which is $15.00 monthly access, added to their Verizon Wireless calling plan to access V CAST Music on their phones.
