Galactica goes mobile with SMS alerts and ringtones

Galactica fans can now signup for free mobile alerts from the SciFi Channel. While the description of this feature is rather bare (”Get the latest SCI FI text updates on your cell phone.”), presumably it will send alerts when new episodes or other BSG-related content air on SciFi.

After entering your cellphone number and network, you can choose to receive alerts for Battlestar Galactica, Stargate Atlantis, Stargate SG-1, or Ghost Hunters.

I’ve signed up for the service, but I still haven’t received my SMS confirmation code. I’ll let you know how it works out.

Also… I ran across a couple of Battlestar Galactica ringtones, mostly based around the original show’s fanfare theme (which has made a few cameos in the new show). The ringtones come in polyphonic and monophonic versions, and several of them sound pretty decent.
