    AT&T to take over Alltel

    Advertisement



    Just in time for Christmas 2010, Verizon Wireless service in Pratt, surrounding counties and most of western Kansas will be switching to AT&T. A definitive agreement was reached May 8 for AT&T to purchase Verizon Wireless assets for $2.35 billion in cash. The transaction is not finalized and will have to have regulatory approval before the purchase is complete, said Kerry Hibbs, AT&T spokesman.

    Thankfully it is mostly the more rural areas of Alltel's markets that will be effected by this. My Alltel market will stay Verizon, which is slightly cheaper than AT&T. But both are still much more expensive than my current Alltel plan, :cry: I'll miss you Alltel.

    Also Verizon will be buying some of AT&T's assets as well. I guess those customers effected on both sides will be forced to get new devices as the deals conclude and the networks are converted between CDMA and GSM.

    I wonder if these changes signal a new next gen network for all carriers that will all work the same? AT&T has purchased a lot of Verizon stuff is my more rural areas also.
    Anyone know what the benefit's of this would be?

    I believe I read that Verizon is going to use the same 4g technology as AT&T (and the majority of the rest of the world). LTE?

    What phone you looking into getting if verizon takes over your area? Or you planing on staying with your current phone till they make you change phones. If they will ever do that.

    If Verizon takes over my area soon I am for sure looking at the storm. If it's later in the year I am looking at reported (rumored) devices such as the storm 2, tour, flip for my wife, and a couple of others.

    I love my 8330 but I am also one of those who wants the newest device to explore and learn about. So if I get a chance to get something newer I am always going to do that.

    I see. I have had my storm since it was released and I love it. I am keeping my eye on that tour it is looking pretty slick. It looks like the flip is coming pretty soon. But you have one satisfied Storm user here.
