The Communications Management Association (CMA) is warning corporations about the boom in mobile multimedia services, saying the trend could cost corporations as their employees use company phones to enter competitions, download ringtones and other services. Paul Fegen, head of CMA's billing group, said corporate telecommunications budget holders are losing out in expansion of these types of mobile services. They are facing rising bills and increased work in accounting for the cost. The CMA is calling for corporations to put controls in place to make sure employees aren't making the company pay for their votes cast for "American Idol."
