Yahoo To Close Down Ringtones Download Service

Not sure why, but I have calls out to Yahoo PR: it will close down its ringtones subscription and download service, Tones.yahoo.com, from December 1. My guess: it will be relaunched as part of a bigger service.
Here’s the notice on the site: “We will be closing our Yahoo! Tones service on December 1, 2006. Any subscriptions should be redeemed no later than November 30, 2006 before they are automatically cancelled. You will not be billed for a subscription after November 1. Your account will remain active for one month from your last bill date. Thank you very much for shopping with Yahoo! Tones.”
Updated: Statment from Yahoo PR: “Yes, we are phasing out Yahoo! Tones over the next several months to focus on the mobile services that are core to Yahoo!’s future growth. We are going to continue to focus on creating unique and compelling services, such as Yahoo! Go for Mobile, that make using the Internet on mobile devices fun and engaging for consumer.”
