I'm thinking about switching to Alltel. Between my T-Tech (15%) discount, the "my circle" stuff, the cheap texting and picture messages, plus the rep can get me a month free.... It's almost worth it to cancel my Verizon contract (cost: $175). I can keep my phone number, too. Plus I won't have to go through hell like I did yesterday when my pix messaging wouldn't work. And why not? because I wasn't picking up Verizon's signals. I was picking up Alltel's.
