Users logging onto MySpace on their cell phones will be able to comment on pictures, update blogs, post bulletins, receive messages, update their mood and find friends.

Although only these features are available on the free mobile version of MySpace, paying customers to various wireless subscribers including AT&T Inc., and Helio will be able to access another version of the site that includes every feature.

The social network claims 80 million unique visitors a month in the U.S.

Other sites that will be offered for free on user cell phones will be RottenTomatoes.com, IGN.com, and FoxSports.com. The mobile ad technology will be provided by Millennial Media.

John Smelzer, Fox Interactive Senior Vice President was quoted in Reuters to say in an interview, “We believe ultimately that people will access the Internet on mobile phones. We want to support that behavior as best we can. The more we can replicate what’s going on online the better.”
