    Title: Alltel and JumpTap Partner on Comprehensive Mobile Search System; With No Additional Charge, Alltel Subscribers Find Exactly What They Are Looking For
    Date: 9/12/2006 11:15:00 AM


    LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sept. 12, 2006--Alltel Wireless
    (NYSE:AT), America's largest network, and JumpTap, Inc., a pioneer in
    the development of innovative, carrier-centric mobile search and
    advertising solutions, today announced a ground breaking partnership.
    The companies will be collaborating on an end-to-end mobile search
    system, which will allow Alltel subscribers to search and discover a
    wide range of relevant and targeted information from a host of
    different mobile, local and web-based providers. All of these new
    capabilities will be offered to Alltel subscribers at no additional
    cost.

    From a single search button, Alltel subscribers will be able to
    search Alltel's full catalog of mobile content to find ringtones and
    wallpapers, in addition to Internet content such as maps and
    directions, news and sports, flight updates, weather, white pages,
    stock quotes, chat services, and any mobile website included in
    JumpTap's Mobile Search Index. In order to help Alltel subscribers
    find highly relevant offers from a broad range of mobile merchants,
    Alltel and JumpTap will allow mobile and local merchants to bid for
    targeted sponsored links and to purchase mobile impressions in
    appropriate places within the Alltel search and browsing experience.
    With mobile search Alltel subscribers will gain access to an open
    market of services with relevant and targeted mobile content.

    "Users want the search that they conduct on their cell phones to
    be easier, faster and more fun than the searches they conduct on the
    Internet," said Wade McGill, senior vice president of wireless product
    management for Alltel Wireless. "Our partnership with JumpTap will
    help our customers find a wider variety of content and information
    from a broader set of providers than they have ever been able to
    access before."

    "Alltel has demonstrated great leadership by using mobile search
    to better understand customer behavior and preferences," said Dan
    Olschwang, JumpTap's president and chief executive officer. "The
    Alltel user experience will continue to be one of the most innovative
    in the mobile industry, and we are excited to help Alltel subscribers
    gain more benefits from their mobile phones."
