    Our US Cellular store went out of business in Newton. Do you think this had anything to do with the Alltel/Verizon merger?

    Given that US Cellular is a completely separate company from both Alltel AND Verizon, and is not involved in their Merger................NO.

    I would think the closure has to do with the economy.

    I guess what I'm thinking is...now that we know that Alltel is going to stay in our market as Verizon, US Cellular will not be able to buy up those old Alltel customers.

    You misunderstood. All areas not being divested will migrate over to Verizon over the next several months. ALL divested areas WILL be sold off as buyers are found. The name and brand of ALLTEL will be disappearing over the next several months. I think that in no more than 18-24 months it will disappear, depending on how fast other companies buy up the divested pieces.
