    It's good. 15 cents a minute or the day plan or the monthly plan. www.alltelu.com You can check your minutes by calling the minutes number they have which is free i believe. You get all the essentials. Things change in price depending on the plan you chose. Only 3 different phones though. I'm not sure if they send you an alert or something when you are low....haven't had it long enough. You can buy minutes at department stores or an alltel store, by phone with a debit/credit card, or online. You can check your minutes used online also. Text messaging is 5 cents per message with the pay-per-minute version, and unlimited with the pay-per-day option i believe. I switched our one over from Simple Freedom.

    Actually you can get any of the currently available phones except the smartphones (Blackberry, Treo, etc.). The first page only has three phones showing but there is a button lower down that you can click to see the rest.

    So when you say that you buy minutes at the department store how does that work? do you have to buy a card or do you just give them the money and they put the minutes on?? how many can you buy at a time and do they expire?

    The department store method is with a card. You can also add minutes online or over the phone with a credit or debit card. I think the minimum value you can buy at one time is $10 but I don't remember seeing cards for less than $20 or $25 (can't remember which). Minutes do not expire. However, if you have the pay by the minute plan, you have to use at least one minute per 30 days or they will dock you a $4 service fee.

    I just bought a pre-paid plan. I get charged 15 cents a minute. You can buy more minutes at the store, on the internet, over the phone by hitting *pay, or by buying a card that has alltelu listed on it. As long as you make 1 call every 30 days, there is no service fee. I bought the Kyocera SOHO phone for $15. I have no complaints this far, and am very happy with Alltel's plan!

    I've been told that under some circumstances you have to dial the phone number you want to call, get some sort of prompt, and than dial the number a second time. I haven't had to do it so I don't know if that's your problem or not but it might be.
