Good news for Alltel Customers

The Verizon/Alltel deal was finalized on Jan. 9, but Alltel customers won’t see any changes until the second quarter of this year. Alltel customers can expect a letter to come to their mailboxes within the next couple of weeks explaining their options for transitioning to Verizon. Word is the “vast majority” of Alltel customers will be able to keep their current phones, and should be able to retain their current plans (including MyCircle). They also mentioned “billing changes”, that once complete, will enable mobile-to-mobile calling minutes between both Verizon and former Alltel customers. Sounds like it’s not as bad as we originally thought!
