Wife and I are getting new phones sent to us also. Our contract is up in February and do not understand sending new phones to customers that may not stay with their service.....

I thought Alltel was owned by Verizon?

they have to send new phones because the current alltel phones don't have the same technology that AT&T will be using when they switch.  The problem is going to be that your new AT&T phone will not use the technology that the majority of the other companies use so the coverage will probably be very poor.  you have 30 days to switch carriers from what I understand, if you do not like the new service.  I'm guessing AT&T will loose 60% plus of their switchover customers.

North Dakota and I think 8 other states filed suit to keep Verizon from gaining a monopoly in their state. Alltel in ND was then purchased by AT&T

I hate change....especially when I have no say in what to expect: I was supposed to get my new At&t phone in Jan, than I heard Feb. Now I am hearing March: Our contract was up in May of last year, and we stuck with them: My wife wants a smart phone, and I just need a phone that works, also we have a 3rd line for my parents....I am really looking at switching to Verizon but have been waiting to get the new phones and give it a whirl.....I'm sick of waiting, and I have no idea when anything will change over.
I've been very happy with our alltel account so far, and almost 3 years of on-time payments, and 140 bucks a month, I just hope that whoever we switch to gives us the same quality service that we have come to expect!
My fear is that when I die my wife will sell my hunting and fishing gear for what I told her I paid for them!

For the past 5 months I've been running my alltel personal phone alongside my verizon work phone.  I've had my alltel phone service for close to ten years.  In western ND the verizon kicks it's but for coverage.

I dumped them when it went from Celluar One West to Alltel. Service and customer service fell off then. I jumped to Verizon and never looked back.

I dont know why cell phone's have to be so complicated. At&t are going to cut there throats since they wont be able to bounce off of other towers dont you think. It makes more sense to me that every cell phone should be able to use every tower.

What are you guys paying a month?  I like the "friends and family" as we can call each other for free: We have 3 phones with 1200 minutes split a month (we don't ever go over) 2 of the phones have 400 text plans (friends and family are free) We don't go over there either: Even though we all go through 1400 min. a month and the 2 text plans send 300-500 a month:
We pay right around 140 for the 3 phones: Looking at options, what should a guy be paying?  What kind of deals can we get with Verizon? Is Alltel "done"....than with this transaction? 

My fear is that when I die my wife will sell my hunting and fishing gear for what I told her I paid for them!

I talked with one of the local Alltel reps here in
Dickinson.  He told me At&T knows they will
lose a lot of customers, but they do not consider
this state to be a "large customer base."  In
other words, they don't give a s$$t about this
state and they don't care if they lose business.
It makes no sense to me, but that's what I was
told.  My wife and I are on Alltel, but the day those
phones show up, I'm heading straight to Verizon.
I hear the coverage is much better and the customer
service is 10 times better.  I really don't care about
any kind of fancy phone, I don't even have mine
on most of the time.  I leave home to get away from
the phone, not to take the phone with me.  But I
know there are a lot of you that need them for your
business, etc and I understand why you would want
a pretty good phone.

Have you looked into the straight talk from Wal mart.  $45 for unlimited min and unlimited texting.  You do have to buy your phone.  Check it out at straighttalk.com.  No roaming can use it where ever you are going.
