Verizon VCast Music Service to Launch in January

While getting a new phone at the local Verizon Wireless store yesterday, I saw on the back of the counter a piece of paper with sales and customer service information for a Verizon VCast Music Service, showing a launch date of January, 2006. Details are sketchy in my mind (I'm willing to look at something sitting in plain sight; snatching it up would have been a bit tacky), and there was no information on pricing or content sources, but I do recall that four phones would be supported - two LGs, "The V" and the VX8100, and a Samsung, all of which would require an "upgrade package", and one yet-to-be-released phone the maker of which I can't recall.
