    If you look on the left, you can choose to show free phones, upgraded phones, or both. All the upgraded phones cost some money.

    Alltel remains as the operating name of Allied Wireless Communications Corp, a subsidiary of Atlantic Tele-Network

    My phone selection is from 10/16/10 to 1/15/11. Now, AT&T says if you don't choose a phone, they will pick the comparable phone and send it out. So does that mean I have until 1/15 to make the choice before they just send one out? If so I'll wait and hope the Bold 9780 is released in Oct or Nov as rumored and is added to the list. Otherwise I'll just have to take what they give me and sell it to buy a Torch.

    Also, are we going to have to turn in whatever phone is on our account once service is changed over? I've got a Bold and a Tour now, and if we have to turn in phones I'd like to turn in the Tour. That way I can keep the Bold and keep using it as a second phone.
    This confusion can easily be avoided if you pronounce the word intended aloud. If it has a voiced Z sound, then it’s “lose.” If it has a hissy S sound, then it’s “loose.” Here are examples of correct usage: “He tends to lose his keys.” “She lets her dog run loose.”

    Loose
    not rigidly fastened or securely attached

    Lose
    to miss from one's possession or from a customary or supposed place

    Also, just because a word has an "s" at the end, doesn't mean it needs an apostrophe.

    mick I haven't heard anything about turning in Alltel phones...but I will note that your Tour and your Bold aren't that useful on AT&T. Both phone are CDMA 850/1900, GSM 850/900/1800/1900, and UMTS 2100.

    AT&T's new network is UMTS 850 (maybe 1900 also?). There is some existing GSM in the area. Some really bad Alltel GSM 850 and GSM 1900, and some even worse AT&T GSM 1900 in isolated areas like part of Missoula, MT.

    I do not know if AT&T is building any additional GSM coverage in our markets or not. If not, you'll have really bad coverage with your Alltel BlackBerry. Even if they do, you'll have very low data speeds with your Alltel BlackBerry.

    That's what I have been wondering if its going to be only 850 or both? Or is it going to be different for each area?

    I'm just assuming they'll work like the Storm that some people have been using on AT&T-no 3G. That's fine for me for a second phone. What I'd do is use the old Alltel phone during the day for work (construction) since 3G isn't an issue. Then I'd keep the new AT&T phone as a good phone. Unfortunately, it looks as if my Alltel Bold and Tour are both better than what I'll be getting from AT&T. I checked eBay for prices on the Torch and they're ridiculous, as usual. They're going for more than the no-commitment price from AT&T. Some idiots even have them listed for $700-$900.

    Correct, no 3G - but what I'm saying is AT&T 2G GSM here might be terrible. We just don't know yet. AT&T's making a big deal out of their new 3G network. Are they even building new GSM? Or are they just going to have what Alltel already has for GSM (it's unusable...)?

    What I do know is that 3G is supposed to be available in most all of the launch areas immediately or almost immediately.

    As for if they will be using Alltels old GSM, I would say it's possible but would likely be much improved. Some AT&T customers I have dealt with have already seen an improvement. So I'm pretty sure things won't be as bad as some think once its all said and done.

    In Utah, the existing 2G GSM hardware is being replaced with AT&T hardware and increased capacity. It is also being added to the towers that currently have no GSM.
