At CES this year, Cricket Wireless introduced Muve Music , an industry-first cell phone plan built around an all-you-can-eat music model.

The carrier first released Muve Music and its accompanying handset, the Samsung Suede, in Las Vegas after a delay .

Now Cricket is expanding the phone and service as promised to 13 new markets, including Washington D.C., Baltimore, Charlotte, Chicago, Memphis/Nashville/Knoxville, Phoenix/Tucson, San Diego, Milwaukee/Madison, and Wichita--with more additions in the works.

Muve Music costs $55 per month for unlimited talk, text, data, and music streaming and downloads. The Samsung Suede sells for $199 without a contract, and is on sale for limited time in new markets for $99 after rebates.
