But be patient as Verizon's next target acquisition is U.S. Cellular.

Well it would be good news for U.S. Cellular customers. They'd get a
lot more mobile to mobile coverage and lower prices.

All Alltel customers except one are thrilled with the Verizon
acquisition of Alltel.


That's a pretty disingenous comment, considering Verizon is available in
many USC and Alltel markets, which wold suggest many customers
specifically chose thos other carriers over Veizon in the first place.

This is like saying customers should be happy if Starbucks buys out the
local independent coffee house since now their gift cards are usable at
more locations.

Most, if not all, Alltel and USC customers could/can already roam freely
on Verizon, so they'll be getting Verizon's draconian policies and
crippled phones along with the "in" calling.

More carriers means more competition, which is good for consumers. You
might be looking forward to a future where Verizon and AT&T are the
consumers' only options, bt I'm not!

A large portion of the Alltel customers in Charleston, SC, CAME from
Verizon about the time GTE Wireless sucked up our beloved Cellular One,
which was quite nice before the merger.

Most Charleston Alltel customers I've met at the former Alltel company
stores are mad as hell at the horrible treatment and shoddy service,
especially the 70Kbps down/30Kbps up data service The Borg have screwed
trying to force them to buy into Verizon's $60/5GB aircards from their
$25/UNLIMITED Alltel tethered phones and $10/UNLIMITED Alltel smartphones
rates.

Verizon data customers started wondering, out loud many of them, why they
had to pay so much for 5GB and the "new guys" could keep their great Alltel
data UNLIMITED that was so cheap. I can understand the corpothink that
turned Alltel data to ****.

The Cricket A600 EVDO Rev A speedtest was 832Kbps down and 480Kbps up at
Bojangles on 3 bars of signal with my ham radio buddy's at breakfast this
morning....the highest speed from any provider at the table.....Works
pretty nice if you're in a Cricket city.
