Alltel Wireless introduced a new service that allows customers to more easily transfer music files from their computers to their phones. The practice, known as "sideloading," requires a software download from Alltel called Jump Music.

Jump Music also allows subscribers to acquire tracks from eMusic and transfer them to their phones.

Only five phone models are compatible, including devices from LG, Motorola and Samsung.
