    I plan to get a scoop and the price is greatly reduced whenever you sing onto a two-year plan. Here's my question: if I get just a texting plan (My Circle Message Pack 1000) will I still receive the discount or does texting plans not qualify as two year type plans.

    The texting plans are considered add-on features. You have to have a voice plan to get service except for Aircards. (Some companies have a data only plan for Blackberries but I haven't seen one for Alltel.) Back to your question, I don't think there is a way to get a line of service for just texting.

    Alltle does have a data only plan for Blackberrys.

    Thank you for answering my question I just have one more. I want to sign up for a message pack 400, I have to have the phone first to sign up for this, correct?

    No. That is the beauty of Alltel that we may lose when we get assimilated by Verizon. You can change your plan anytime. :D

    Well, truthfully he/she DOES have to have the phone and account to be able to add this message pack...so you just gave some bad advice...sorry. I guess maybe you misread his question?

    That's what I said bryan? You can change your plan at any time contract or not. Verizon doesn't do that and I was pointing out that we will lose that more than likely.

    Ok so I got my phone and I'm always roaming or at least I think I am, the square with an R in it is always flashing. Does that mean I'm not roaming or does it?

    Hmm. You are not in your home area or you are hitting a covered tower that is owned by Sprint/Verizon.
