I went to the Verizon store today and came away empty handed. Now I’m thinking I should check out some other places maybe?
I simply wanted to get myself a phone and transfer my old phone number to the new phone. My current phone is owned and paid for by my employer – but I’ve been told that I can keep the number. According to Verizon it isn’t that easy. The number has to stay with the phone because it is under a 2 year contract.
To make a kinda long and confusing story short – I am better off to just get a new phone number because if I don’t I’m not a new customer to them. I guess that is fine – maybe I’ll become a new customer to Alltel or something.
So I’m curious to find out what you might say about Alltel if any of you are Alltel customers. How are they compared to Verizon? What kind of phones have you liked and what have you not liked? I looked at phones a little bit and kinda liked the Blackberry Pearl. I’m not sure if I’d get internet and/or text messaging services or not. At Verizon that was gonna be $30/month – so probably not.
Let me know what you think about either of these companies if you have experiences with them.
