Sprint announced a partnership Wednesday with Smarter, a GPS-based location service that lets customers view listings for available nearby apartments without requiring entry of a ZIP code. Information
in the Apartments for Rent service includes rental prices and full apartment details including building amenities and pet policies. Many of the listings, supplied by Apartments.com, also include
interior pictures and floor plans. Properties can be located using MapQuest, and users can also use the service to search for apartments nationwide by entering a city and a state. Apartments for Rent
is being offered on certain Sprint and Nextel phones, including the Motorola RAZR and KRZR handsets, for $2.99 per month, plus standard data charges.
