Once you've downloaded the music you love, My Music automatically organizes it for you. Listen to songs, create playlists, cut Ringtones and manage your music experience.

My DJ creates playlists for you and sends them to your phone. It does all the work, while you just enjoy the new music. My DJ Playlists are automatically updated so you're always in for something new. If you like a playlist just the way it is, just duplicate and rename. Now it's yours to customize.

Ever hear a song somewhere that you didn't know but liked? Press Shazam to identify the title and artist instantly. Then download the song with the touch of a button. The Muve Music difference is that you can choose to download not just the track, but the entire album. No switching programs, no inputting passwords, just one touch and it's on your phone. It's that easy.
Because plans are pay-as-you-go, you have to top-up your Cricket PAYGo account balance in order to have funds available to use Cricket PAYGo services. When you receive your phone, go to mycricket.com to activate service. While there, you can enroll in auto top-up, which automatically adds funds to your account each month, or you can choose to buy top-up cards and PINs at locations nationwide or dial *PAY on your phone to top-up with your credit or debit card.
Topping-up can also extend your Cricket PAYGo account expiration date, which applies to all funds in your Cricket PAYGo account. Each top-up makes those funds available for use for a limited time. When you top-up, your account expiration date is reset to a new expiration date based on your top-up amount or your current expiration date, whichever is later.
With a commitment to predictability, simplicity and value, Cricket offers a simple, affordable, flat-rate wireless solution featuring nationwide talk, U.S. long distance, Mobile Web services, data and messaging over a nationwide, 3G network. Cricket service is easy for everyone to use, since there is no complicated phone bill at the end of the month, and easy for everyone to purchase, since long-term contracts and credit checks are not required.
Android Gingerbread Operating System
The Samsung Vitality runs the Android 2.3 operating system (dubbed Gingerbread)--the fastest version of Android available for smartphones yet. It features a cleaner, more refined interface with new icons, improved top notification bar, and more intuitive navigation.
Multitasking in Gingerbread allows you the ability to run more than one app at a time. If you're playing a game, you can easily switch to an incoming e-mail and then switch back to the game without losing your place. And like the previous version of Android ("Froyo"), Gingerbread provides support for Adobe Flash Player 10.1 for access to the full Web.
The onscreen keyboard makes it easier to type thanks to additional spacing between the keys and larger font sizes. And the more you use the keyboard, the easier typing will be as the enhanced suggest feature records previous input history to make better suggestions.
The Vitality also brings one-touch access to the popular Google mobile services you use every day. It also provides easy access to both personal and corporate e-mail, calendars, and contacts supported by Exchange Server and Gmail. And through Android Market, you'll get access to thousands of useful applications, widgets, and fun games to download and install on your phone, with many more apps being added every day.
- Android Market for browsing and downloading thousands of free and paid apps
- Pre-loaded Android apps: Browser, Calculator, Calendar (Google or Corporate), Camera, Clock, Contacts, Email, Gallery, Messaging, Music, News & Weather, Phone, Settings, Video Player, Voice Dialer, Voice Search, YouTube
- Google applications: Gmail, Google Search, Google Voice Search, Google Latitude, Google Maps, Google Places, Google Talk
