    Data issues outside of Alltel Area.

    I use my phone more for data than for voice. Has anybody else had poor data service while roaming?

    I was in Gatlinburg, Tn, and the data side crawled. Searches were slow, and other applications would barely pull up information. I have noticed the issue in other areas, but it seems to be getting worse. I checked my prl and it is 31011. I have a X and my wife has a Desire, and we both were having the same problems.

    If Alltel doesn't turn this ship around soon they are going to lose me.

    you're most likely just roaming on 1X outside of your native area, Sprint does the same and it's annoying as crap since their phones are programmed to say "3G" even when on 1X

    I guess I am going to have to make a move to a different carrier. Data is more important to me than talking.

    Data roaming on Verizon has basically been disabled, unless your getting Sprint EVDO its going to be slow. Take a look at the data map on the Alltel site, it shrunk big time when the newer prls came out.
    Still using a 3 watt analog bag phone in 2011!
