NEW PHONES FOR ALLTEL

I understand that on 11/24/03 the number portability kicks in, and this probably has a lot of carriers scared. As for me I currently have Allele for a carrier, and the one thing that upsets me the most is the fact that they have a very crappy selection of phones. Can anyone tell me if they will be coming out with any new clamshell style phones within the next few weeks?, Or will I have to take my current cell phone number and go to another carrier?

College Discount...

Since I believe ATTWS and Cingular are the only companies that give a discount of this nature...

Does anyone know what the actual discount is for each company?

Some Help, Please.......

I am an ATTWS customer who's contract expired months ago, am now month to month.
The question I have to ask is this: Can anyone recommend a carrier, that beyond any doubt works in both these places, Gainesville, Fl. zip 32614 and Bay Shore, N.Y. zip 11706?
Before I sign with a new carrier, I'd like to know all the facts. I'd appreciate any info in this matter.
(I live in Gainesville, Fl.,32614)
Thank You!

New Pocket PC Phone?

I heard rumors that Siemens is coming out with a new Pocket PC Phone, the new version of the SX56 in the near future.

I was wondering if anyone has any information about this. Is it just a rumor or it is verified? If so, when is it expected in the US? Will it still be available for AT&T?

If I could get some info on this, I may end up returning the SX56 phone I just bought before the 30 days is up.

Thanks everyone!

my opinon

Smile I have my own opinion on all that is going on in the wireless world. at&t and sprint are going to lose big time. cingular will stay stagnant. t-mobile and verizon will become winners. at&t and cingular will merge to try to catch up. sprint will keep on falling Very Happy

Cingular Merger

I TOLD YA SO. I brought it up and look what pops into the headlines. All you guys said it wasn't going to happen, but Cingular will buy out either ATTW or T-Mobile. So all you CDMA fans better look out because Cingular will be #1.

Eve of LNP

Just a vent. I'm not a fan of telcos. They don't exist to provide service for their subscribers or jobs for their employees. They exist to produce quarterly profits for their shareholders. That said, LNP is not fair to them. Every service agreement since phone service began clearly states the phone number is their property and part of the service they provide. Like credit card numbers and email addresses. Change companies, get a new number and address and have to distribute it to creditors, friends, contacts, family etc. I just changed carriers myself a month ago and did it. Big deal. It's their number, not mine, any more than a credit card number or email address. The millions spent on this could have been spent on systems and up...

What do think of this? A maybe?

Does anyone know or think that in the next few months ATTWS, T-Mobile and Cingular will become one large company? Or will they remain seperate?
I don't see how all 6 companies can all make money, and still keep all their equipment updated, what do you think?

ATTWS is their "footprint" expanding?

I live here in Gainesville, Fl.,(32614) while I was reading our local paper(Gainesville Sun) in tech section. They said that ATTWS will be avail in this area in the beginning of 2004.
Does anyone from ATTWS or anyone else heard about this? In the same section, that speak about computers and the internet. And they always have the latest updates in the tech world.
So maybe the question I have asked on this forum will finaly been answered. Smile

Attn: Gagirl, I do like reading your editorials

You do know what you are talking about!
I am currently a ATTWS customer, and my contract expired months ago. One of the reasons I haven't jumped to verizon, it's their phones.
I wish they had a bigger selection of Nokia phones. I ahve been to the local verizon store several times, and their current look and probably perform okay. But they feel like toys.
I have had Nokia's since "1996", and no matter how many times I have dropped them they always work! Is there a reason why Nokia does not provide verizon with a larger selection of avail choices?
Thanks.
