I have been with Alltel a long time in fact I was the second one to have a mobile phone in eastern NC. It really did so much for my business, but after fifteen years I have watched them go down to nothing. I got my phone wet a few months ago and had to get a new one and you guessed it, I had to sign a two year contract. The phones have got so small I can't hold them or see the numbers. My bill is sky high and I wonder how all these kids can pay the bill. They must have put me on the lower part of the tower because my service sucks. Would rather take a butt whooping than have to go to one of their stores. There is never anyone there that can answer a question for you. Tried to call the CEO and nobody knows him. Now I have people Texting me and I have no idea what to do with it wouldn't it be easier to just dial the dam number and say HELLO. I'm scared to change my service for my business because I've had the number for so long. So what the heck do you do? I'm just disgusted. >:(

Get T-Mobile.  Best rates of all the carriers. Best customer service and same or better coverage as Verizon and ATT (over 40 JD Powers Awards on customer service and coverage).  And you can keep your current number.  Plus they have the best international coverage of all the carriers.

In addition, they're the ONLY ones that will tell you exactly what their coverage is with their street level coverage map.  The other carriers just give a blanket statement like "Oh ya, your city is covered".  Here's their coverage map:

http://www.t-mobile.com/coverage/pcc.aspx  Just enter your address and you'll see what I mean.

They also have a number of rate plans that do not require a long-term contract.

Verizon and ATT have very deep pockets, and spend a lot of money on advertising that tells you they have good coverage (where do you think they get the money?  High rates, of course.) T-Mobile instead spends their money on adding towers (over 1,500 new ones last year, more than 3,000 next year).  And yes, they even have 3G too.

Oh, and if you sign up now, you get a free companion air flight ticket to anywhere in the US.  Sweet deal.

Didn't Verizon just buy Alltel??

If I remember correctly they did and by the end of next year will be taking over all of their cell towers....

The last time I heard, that's what the deal was.  They hit a snag about a month ago, but I was told it will go thru.

here, cingular is the ticket.

the one dead spot in the entire state is one small hill within a mile of a state correctional facility.

which is probably not a bad idea.

I have had Alltel for yars and have been very pleased with their service.  However, when the service goes over to Verizon, I will switch to someone else.

I have alltel and like it so much better than nextel.  I am curious to see what changes take place when verizon takes over.

I have had Alltel ever since I got a cell phone. (9 years).  I love the service and my plan is good too.  No complaints here.  I wonder what will happen when it switches over to Verizon.

Try running a business with it and see what you think. I have gone days before a voice mail would show up. About two years ago it cost  me a $70,000. job because I didn't return a call that I never got for like a week. Thats when I tried to reach the CEO and no one knew who he was.

Frogtog-

 If you want to switch to a new carrier, Alltel is required by law to be able to transfer your current phone number to that new service.  Too many people had been getting the shaft from their providers and did not switch because they did not want to change numbers, so it is now required that you have the option of importing your old/current number to a new service.
