Alltel Wireless has partnered with Frog Design and eMusic to offer Jump Music, a free application for transferring music from your PC to your cell phone.

Similar to the iTunes Music Store model, consumers can navigate to eMusic directly from the Jump Music interface and purchase songs from eMusic's vast catalog of DRM-free MP3s. New Jump Music users can take advantage of a special introductory offer of 35 free eMusic songs. All this, and you can transfer your existing music collection to your cell phone as well. It's initially compatible with only five Alltel phones: the LG AX8600 , the Motorola Krzr K1m, the Motorola Razr V3m, the Samsung u520, and the Samsung Wafer .

Alltel hopes to add more phones to the list. You can purchase a Jump Music accessory kit--featuring a 256 MB memory card, a USB cable, and a stereo headset--for $49.99 from the Alltel store.
