Alltel Reps say that there is Alltel native coverage in western NC (Asheville area). So someone can live there and be happy with Alltel. Even Alltel's website will let you sign up, Asheville's main zip code is 28801. But it's the exact opposite. I was just there today and there was still only Verizon & Sprint (also USCC, but solid Roaming). There are no towers or stores with anything Alltel within 25 miles of Asheville. The closest region you'd have to go would be northeast TN, upstate SC, or the Charlotte area for native coverage. Why does Alltel insist there is native coverage in WNC when there actually isn't?
