    Alltel Wireless introduces texting to “My Circle”

    Addition of text messaging makes it easier than ever for “My Circle” customers to stay connected with those that matter most

    LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – As text messaging is becoming a popular communication method for millions of Americans, Alltel Wireless, America’s largest network, today announced the addition of “texting” to its exclusive “My Circle” offer. Starting today, “My Circle” customers with a “My Circle” message pack starting at $7.99 can send and receive unlimited text/video/picture messages to anyone in their “Circle,” as well as other Alltel Wireless customers.

    Customers can choose from several message packs including plans for $7.99 or $12.99 which provides users 400 or 1,000 additional text/video/picture messages, respectively, to communicate with consumers outside of their “Circle” or that are not Alltel customers. For customers seeking unlimited messaging, Alltel Wireless still offers the $19.99 All Access Pass that includes unlimited messaging and mobile web. “My Circle” message packs can be added to any “My Circle” five, 10 or 20 calling plan.

    “Alltel’s ‘My Circle’ provides customers the ultimate in choice and value by giving them the ability to call or text any five, 10 or 20 numbers,” said Frank O’Mara, chief marketing officer of Alltel Wireless. “Whether talking or texting, our new “My Circle” message packs provide customers the most cost-effective plans for staying in touch with friends, families and business associates.”

    In addition to the “My Circle” message packs, Alltel is also introducing new “My Circle” Family Choice Plus plans. For $84.99 per month, customers will receive two lines with 1,000 shared minutes and the ability to call any 10 numbers on any network. Also, customers can receive two lines with 2,000 shared minutes and unlimited calling within their “Circle” of 20 numbers for $114.99.

    In addition to the unlimited calling within their “Circle,” Family Choice plan customers will receive unlimited mobile-to-mobile calls and unlimited nights and weekends. Customers will also have the ability to choose either free evening calls starting at 7 p.m. or 1,000 text/picture/video messages the plans include unlimited texting to their “Circle of Friends” and other Alltel customers.

    “My Circle” customers receive unlimited free calls to and from any combination of home phone, office or wireless numbers located anywhere in the U.S., regardless of local phone company or wireless carrier. Alltel Wireless makes it easy for customers to change their numbers anytime for free, by simply visiting My Account - Alltel Wireless. Free calls to “My Circle” numbers are in addition to anytime minutes, unlimited night / weekend minutes and unlimited mobile-to-mobile minutes included in customers’ calling plans.

    Alltel Wireless was the first carrier to offer Anytime Plan Changes, giving customers the flexibility to change their calling plans at any time, without extending their current contract.

    Alltel is owner and operator of the nation’s largest wireless network and has more than 13 million customers. For more information about Alltel, please visit Cell Phone, Cell Phone Plans, and Cell Phone Accessories - Alltel Wireless.

    Wrong, your plan does not include unlimited txt/mms for m2m customers and your mycircle numbers. The 84.99 plan does.

    You are correct!! The 79.99 plan doesn't include the m2m/my circle texting.

    It is a very good service provided by the Alltel Wireless service provider. The main attractive feature is its price tag. .By using this “My Circle” service we can send many text/video/picture messages to others in our circle. With this cheap price Alltel Wireless service provider are providing too much facilities.

    huh? Alltel still needs an add on unlimited family text plan in the 25-30 dollar price point. It would cost me 60 dollars for unlimited text on my 3 lines. Alltel is the only carrier not offering a shareable unlimited family text plan. Very disappointing!

    It seems Alltel is more interested in providing more unlimited voice deals (My Circle)
    versus unlimited data deals (SMS/MMS), which is great for me :).

    I don't ever use text, and between our 4 lines, only one has unlimited text/pix/video for $20.

    But I do think the $8 texting to My Circle is a good deal, unless your circle has mostly landlines :)

    I would use text more often if I didn't have to pay extra for it.
    This doesn't help me much.
