    Re: Question

    According to what had been on the Alltel site for those shifting to Verizon, some Alltel phones can be made to work on Verizon. How they are going to accomplish this the site didn't say. I would assume flashing is the way. Also, it didn't say which Alltel phones could be usable on Verizon's network.

    Your best bet is to call Verizon and see what they say. The message on the Allte site I referenced above is no longer on there. Now there's just links to Verizon's site.

    Re: Question

    An Alltel Blackberry will work fine on VZW once your area is converted in the Billing System, as long as you stay on your Alltel Price Plan.

    The basic rule for phones to plans is this:

    Alltel phone, Alltel Plan = business as usual
    VZW phone, VZW Plan = business as usual
    VZW phone, Alltel Plan = phone will work but data services can be slightly to severely impaired.
    Alltel phone, VZW Plan = NOT ALLOWED
