So, recently Alltel was bought by Verizon for 28 million. My contract is up in August 2008 and I don't want to sign on to a new 2 year contract because I don't know when the merger will finally be complete. I talked to an alltel rep. recently and they said sometime in November 2008. Can anyone confirm this as a fact or is still up in the air because that seems to short a time for a merger this big. Thanks for the help!!!
