Sprint PCS Wireless Web agreed to open its network to America Online's AOL Mobile Services. AOL Mobile Services, taking the third slot on the opening screen of the Sprint PCS Wireless Web, will provide AOL features including e-mail, news, weather and stock quotes, as well as content from Digital City and AOL MovieFone. AOL and Sprint PCS plan a joint marketing campaign this summer. Separately, AOL announced that membership in its AOL services topped 23 million members. The company credits new features, including AOL Mobile Services and the launch of AOL TV the week of June 19, with spurring membership subscriptions.
