Alltel is Intoducing New 1 Year Contracts at 2 Year Contract Prices!
Alltel Wireless let it be known today that beginning tomorrow, June 5th, 1 year contracts will replace the currant 2 year contract for new and renewing Alltel customers. On top of that, handsets will remain at price levels of 2 year contracts so customers get the 2 year price with only a 1 year commitment.
"Wireless customers have been waiting for an option like this for a long time,"
said Paul Bowersock, Senior Sales & Operations Leader for the Alltel Divestiture
Trust. "With a 1-year contract option, customers can take greater control over
their wireless experience, having the flexibility to choose their contract
length and the latest innovative handsets at the most competitive price
Before you get too excited, for those of you like me who will be soon converted to Verizon customers, this deal is not for us! It is only for the 91 markets that Verizon is required to divest including those who will become AT&T(pending regulatory approval). This little piece of key info quickly burst my bubble, but it's great news for those in the divested markets. It would be awesome to see some of the main players in the cellular world adopt this idea, but I won't hold my breath.

That's great news for the right markets. Unfortunately, I will be in the Verizon market soon - just got my letter a few days ago.
Thanks for the news, Az.
