Yahoo, Sprint debut wireless pay email service

Yahoo and Sprint are teaming with wireless-messaging company Seven to offer Yahoo! Mail for Mobile. The low-cost pay email service allows users to access their messages wirelessly on mobile devices. The service, available only to Sprint PCS customers, will cost $2.99 per month and is available nationwide starting today. Activities performed on the phone will be fully synchronized with the user's Yahoo account, say the companies. With their service, Yahoo and Sprint are targeting people who need to access email while on the go but don't want to be tied to a Research In Motion Blackberry.
