The digital record label Craze has announced their new service called MMS and Buy, which lets you send an MMS picture of a record label to their number which replies with a link to their site with ringtones of the music on that album. Anyone who’s into the mobile music shopping has probably looked at Walkman’s TrackID with a bit of envy. MMS and Buy might not be quite as versatile as audio recognition, but it’s a start. Right now, the service is only available in the UK, but they’re hoping to expand into other merchandise, like posters and concert tickets.

BlackBerrySync dug up a handy little web app by Cellsea which lets you upload audio files right from your desktop or through an existing URL, and cut it up for BlackBerry ringtoney goodness. Best of all? Free! There’s already over 20,000 ringtones uploaded by users, for your browsing pleasure. I gave the thing a shot and it hunky-dory. For quick and dirty ringtones, this is a great solution.
Bplay’s recently announced the release of a wooping 15,000+ MP3 ringtones for sale. BlackBerry’s a little behind in the consumer game, where MP3 ringtones have been around for a good long time already on most other mobiles, and not so much on our slightly more conservative handhelds. With the likes of the Curve and Pearl sexifying the BlackBerry scene with polyphonic ringtone support, it’s high time someone started taking advantage of it. Of course Bplay’s got the usual games and whatnot – I’ve been hitting Brain Up a fair bit lately, myself.
