Alltel Wireless launches Jump Music, letting customers turn their phones into portable music players. Jump Music will allow customers to transfer compatible music from their computers to their phone with free and easy to use software.
The Jump Music application currently will work only on a PC (sorry Mac users) and will be initially compatible with only five phones: LG AX8600, MOTOKRZR K1m, MOTORAZR V3m, Samsung u520 and the Wafer by Samsung. The Jump Music software on the PC will allow users to find, manage and transfer music files with a simple click.
“For those who have been waiting for an easy way for customers to put music on their phones – Jump Music is it,” said Wade McGill, senior vice president of wireless products for Alltel.
Jump Music is available for download at www.alltel.com/jumpmusic. Jump Music is working in partner with eMusic where customers can download the DRM free music that will be required. New users will get a special offer of 35 free tracks when signing up. In addition to the eMusic subscription users can also purchase accessory kits from Alltel.
