Update: It’s official, Alltel wireless is now all gone. While we will all miss Alltel, Wirefly offers service and all the latest devices from Verizon Wireless, AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile across the US, and we believe one or more of these carriers will always be a viable choice for wireless customers residing in Alltel’s divested markets.
This past January, Verizon Wireless became the nation’s largest wireless carrier, sealing a multi-billion dollar deal to acquire Alltel Wireless. Most Alltel markets have now been acquired by Verizon Wireless, and Alltel customers in those markets are now asking “Can you hear me now?”
As a condition of Verizon’s acquisition of Alltel, the FCC required that certain Alltel markets be divested and sold to other carriers. These remaining Alltel markets are scheduled to be sold to AT&T and Atlantic Tele-Network (ATN) in late-2009/early-2010. Customers in these markets will start receiving invoices from AT&T and ATN soon after the divestiture of these markets is completed in 2010.
As a result of these changes, Wirefly soon will stop selling Alltel service. If Alltel service is available where you live, you may still purchase new or upgrade Alltel service through Wirefly.
Wirefly has a broad selection of Alltel devices including the LG Tritan, BlackBerry Tour, LG Rhythm, HTC Touch Pro, UTStarcom UM175 USB modem and more. We also sell phones and service contracts for Verizon Wireless, AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile across the US, and we believe one or more of these carriers will always be a viable choice for wireless customers residing in Alltel’s divested markets.
