LONDON, October 22 /PRNewswire/ -- 3 and Jumbuck Entertainment Ltd announced today the availability of Power Chat, the world's largest mobile chat community, and Fast Flirting, the first global speed dating mobile community on the 3G Network.


With Power Chat, 3 customers are able to join live chat rooms such as Singles, Flirting, 30+ and World Chat. They can also check out photos and profiles, have private chats, send virtual gifts, and much more.

Fast Flirting lets users choose from a list of flirters online and have up to 10-minutes of private text chat. Users can customize their identity with graphically rich avatars and photos, and increase their flirting fun by sending virtual gifts and winks.

We are pleased to be working with 3 by offering our massive mobile community to their customers, said Ted Verani, SVP of Sales Marketing. Because Jumbuck is connecting carriers worldwide, 3 users are always assured of hundreds of people online at any time for quick chat and fast flirts.

Alex Woodhams, Social Networks Product Manager, at 3 said: Jumbuck has a great reputation in the mobile chat space and these new services offer a much richer experience over our 3G Network than was previously available on other 2G networks. With the momentum of Social Networking and demand for services that enable users to communicate via the mobile internet, Jumbuck's services are a complementary addition to Planet 3.

3 users can access Power Chat and Fast Flirting direct from their mobile by going to the Planet 3 Chat Blog category. Jumbuck services are monitored so that users can chat and flirt safely.
