Updated: clarified which Alltel device.

Verizon Wireless has revealed that it will not activate legacy Alltel handsets on its network any longer. Moving forward, Verizon Wireless will only activate Alltel devices on its network that are currently active on the Alltel network. Old Alltel handsets that have never been activated will no longer be supported. "To give customers the best experience on our network, we are encouraging them to move to current devices. Customers who are told they cannot activate an older Alltel device are able to take advantage of any current promotions, including free devices as offered on our web site," said Verizon Wireless. Verizon closed its acquisition of Alltel in January 2009.

Seems Reasonable

They gave 3 years to activate them....any unactivate Alltel phone someone has is thus a minimum of 3-4 years old and probably in crappy condition....people with unused phones that old would be better off just buying a new phone.
