    If you mean getting the phone unlocked, there's no point. CDMA phones are notoriously difficult to use on another carrier's network. Some small carriers are able to flash phones to work on their network, but not the big guys (Verizon and Sprint).

    Though Verizon and Alltel are technically one company now, phone inter-compatibility between the two doesn't exist yet (how they'll make that happen is anyone's guess, if they do it at all).

    As far as the GSM side goes, the phone will only work in Europe and places operating on the 900/1800mhz bands. American bands are 850/1900, so your phone won't work on T-Mobile or AT&T or any other North American GSM carrier.

    So there's nothing an Alltel store could do anyway.
