Between Sept. 2 and Nov. 1, 2008, customers who purchase or upgrade to a Samsung Glyde or Verizon Wireless Juke by Samsung at participating Verizon Wireless or Circuit City locations, register the purchase online and install Verizon Wireless’ V CAST Music with Rhapsody software on their computers will be able to instantly download four complimentary exclusive live versions of songs from the Jonas Brothers’ hot new album, “A Little Bit Longer.” Customers will also have the chance to be entered to win a trip to Atlantis to see the Jonas Brothers.

“We’re continuing to help fans connect with the Jonas Brothers in innovative ways while delivering exclusive music our customers can enjoy on their new Samsung phones,” said Ed Ruth, director of digital music for Verizon. “The Jonas Brothers are clearly the hottest act in the nation, and this program makes dreams come true for some of our customers with the trip of a lifetime to Atlantis.”

Fans can get Jonas Brothers songs, including their latest single, “Burnin’ Up,” as full-song downloads, ringtones or ringback tones. Customers who subscribe to V CAST Music with Rhapsody, Verizon Wireless’ music service that includes a library of more than 5 million songs, can download Jonas Brothers music to their PCs free of digital rights management (DRM) software that restricts how and where music can be played. The music can then be side-loaded to the Samsung Glyde or Verizon Wireless Juke by Samsung; customers with the Samsung Glyde can also download songs over-the-air.

“Samsung is excited and proud to be chosen as the exclusive mobile phone partner for Verizon Wireless’ program with the Jonas Brothers,” said Paul Golden, vice president of strategic marketing for Samsung Telecommunications America. “The Jonas Brothers have some of the best fans out there, and we can’t wait to meet the lucky Samsung owners who will meet the boys at Atlantis during this special and exclusive opportunity.”

“We have loved hosting the Jonas Brothers on their personal vacations to Atlantis and are thrilled to finally have them perform for our guests,” said Michele Wiltshire, senior vice president of special events and entertainment, Kerzner International. “Atlantis has a long history of hosting the hottest bands for guest performances and the Jonas Brothers are an unbelievable finale to this year’s Atlantis Live! concert series.”

A pop culture phenomenon of the first order, the Jonas Brothers – Kevin, Joe and Nick – have taken the world by storm, creating headlines and hysteria with their sold-out tour from coast to coast. Since the August 2007 release of their self-titled debut album for Hollywood Records, they’ve racked up one chart-topping hit after another. The brothers’ new album, “A Little Bit Longer,” debuted at #1 on Billboard and was one of three Jonas Brothers albums in the top 10 in one week – shattering previous records for the most albums in the top 10 for one artist. The hugely successful Burning Up tour is being filmed for a 3D movie which will hit theaters Feb. 22, 2009. The brothers have been honored with two 2008 MTV Video Music Awards nominations, “Video of the Year” and “Best Pop Video,” and recently starred in the Disney Channel original movie “Camp Rock,” which averaged 8.9 million viewers and was the network’s most-watched non-sequel movie ever. They also shot their own reality TV series, “Jonas Brothers – Living the Dream” and this fall will star in their own Disney Channel comedy series, “J.O.N.A.S.”
