As you’ll have seen from our earlier post, Nokia announced that its Comes With Music service will launch next month in the UK, with a special-edition 5310 handset to be sold through Carphone Warehouse on pay-as-you-go contracts.Now Carphone Warehouse has announced some of the small print, revealing that users will be responsible for all data charges incurred from using the service (which, if they download tracks over the air on pay-as-you-go data rates, could be steep). It’s also given more details on what happens when users’ Comes With Music 12-month subscription expires, in terms of keeping their tracks.The full ‘Notes To Editors’ section of Carphone’s press release is pasted in over the jump: check it out by clicking the link below.Notes To EditorsNokia Comes With Music (CWM) launches in the autumn, on a pre-pay basis on the Nokia 5310 White, exclusively in The Carphone Warehouse stores nationwide and on www.carphonewarehouse.comThe Nokia 5310 will be available with eight colour variants: White with Silver, Blue, Pink, Orange or Green and Black with Pink, Red or Blue.The main added features to the Nokia Music Store to support Nokia Comes With Music are:

  • No additional charge for content is made per download – the music is “free” at the point of download and no prices are displayed to CWM users. End user would still be responsible for any data charges involved
  • The user has to register their PC and their CWM device to their account before any content can be downloaded and content can then only be downloaded / synchronised between the two devices registered to the account at any one time. The user can only be logged into one device at the time
  • At the time of launch downloading of the tracks is not restricted unless usage is not considered to be for personal usage or user is using any unsupported applications or connection methods. If average usage for all users reached predefined levels Nokia is allowed to restrict number of downloads for individual users
  • Existing users can add CWM to their current Nokia Music account if they buy a CWM device after initial registration
  • If the user buys a new PC during the initial 12 month term they can transfer their CWM collection to it (once in three months)
  • At the end of the initial 12 months term the user can keep the music on their original device and PC. And if they buy a new compatible (i.e. Nokia) device or a new PC they can re-download or synchronise all of the content they have downloaded under their CWM subscription. The user is able to change registered mobile device or PC every three months for a further two years post termination
  • After two years post termination (after three years from beginning of the subscription) users will be able to keep the content on their current device/PC BUT will no longer be able to re-download it from the service
