    Hi all,

    Contemplating another relocaiton possibility. I didn't like Tennessee.. The company has an opening at a terminal in Columbus, OH.

    Does Alltel have a footprint in Columbus??

    I'd like to switch to national freedom or greater freedom if so, as I'll be running the Columbus Metro and surrounding areas.

    Thanks

    Alltel does not have native servce in Columbus. You would roam for free on Sprint (preferred) or Verizon. Coverage should not be any problem. Alltel does have native service in Licking County, which borders Franklin County to the east. Once you're a customer, Alltel doesn't seem to care if you move out of their primary service area. They'll let you remain a customer anyway. There is a 50% roaming clause in the customer agreement, but they don't seem to enforce it if you are on Sprint or Verizon. The only downside is that you will not be able to get a Columbus phone number. I'd just switch to National Freedom before moving and tell them to change your billing address afterward.

    To be honest with you, I would rather keep my current numbers. That way, the family down here will have a local number to reach me. My main concern is to get off the Total Freedom plan and have National Freedom or Greater Freedom. This way, I get more minutes for the same price.

    If I can roam free up there on the National Freedom plan, I'll be just fine then.

    thanks

    Greater Freedom wouldn't be very helpful unless you change to an Ohio number. Otherwise, it will base it off your original number's footprint for GF. National Freedom shouldn't be a problem in the Columbus, OH area, though.

    I go there often. Coverage is awesome. There are some bad areas in the country, but there was no GSM service and some cdma service. All & all, service was great.
