Alltel turns on Jump Music

Alltel Wireless announced Jump Music, a free service enabling subscribers to transfer compatible music files from their PCs to their handsets. Developed by strategic-creative consultancy Frog Design, the PC-based Jump Music app promises Alltel customers one-button control over finding, managing and transferring music files as well as enabling navigation to online music storefront eMusic. Each new Jump Music user will also be given 35 free eMusic DRM-free MP3 downloads. 

"For those who have been waiting for an easy way for customers to put music on their phones, Jump Music is it," said Alltel senior vice president of wireless products Wade McGill in a prepared statement. "Jump Music makes it incredibly simple for our customers to take their music with them anywhere they go, and it demonstrates our commitment to providing customers choice and control over their wireless experience."
