    My fiance has Alltel and I think she needs to switch to Sprint...Why? Because her use is erratic. One month she'll use 600 minutes, the next 1200, the next 800, the next 1400. She has a 1000 minute plan with n&w, etc. She gets hit hard with the overages and is unable to manage her minutes. I am the only person she knows who has Altell, so she will not be losing many M2M minutes..I think she may be a good candidate for Sprint's fair and flexible, am I crazy? or am I right? Her bills have been anywhere from 60 to 200 bucks.....I love Alltel, but maybe she needs to go somewhere else, what y'all think? What are the benefits and downfalls of Sprint? I have heard horrible CS stories...are these true? Do I have to pay for roaming outside of Sprint's network? Will I roam on Verizon, Alltel, USCC? Where we grew up, Sprint does not offer native service...so when we visit home, will we have to pay high roaming charges? or will the minutes be included??? I can not find these answers anywhere....Thanks!!! Zip code is 03246 where we grew up and 28273 where we live now...

    How many minutes a month do you use? The reason for asking is maybe you could put her on your account and ya'll could share minutes.....$99 2000 anytime mins.....shared line $10....you get the pic.....may not be feasible but its something to think about. I mean do YOU really want her on Sprint! :D

    The family plan that jjdu suggested might be a very good option for you guys, especially if you are satisfied with alltel coverage and service. Upgrading her to a higher end plan for a little more money might also be worth the $ if you are satisfied...just some things to think about.

    With Sprint's new plans they include roaming, I think, but don't expect DATA services like SMS to work yet, PCS2PCS minutes also don't apply while roaming.

    If you can find a way to stay with alltel if you're happy with them, then I'd go that route.

    Hi y'all...we decided to stay with Alltel...We merged our accounts and signed up for the 75$ plan..1000 minutes between 2 lines, M2M, Unlimited N & W starting at 7....I only average about 200 anytime min....800 n&w and 800 m2m...we looked closely at her bill and most of her calls, about 60% are made afer 7:00...so the n&w at 7 should help significantly for her...glad to remain in the Alltel family....sometimes you just need to look closely at your usage!
