    I am up for an upgrade, and would like to get the LG eNV Touch from Verizon.
    I would like to renew my Alltel account though as it is better/cheaper than any Verizon plan.

    Can I do this?

    Maybe you could ask your rep and just buy the phone outright. You still get the one year warranty.

    I"d hold off. If you can wait maybe four or five months you should transition to the VZW billing system, be a full fledged VZW customer, and get the phone with no hassle. Right now no Alltel employee would knowingly activate for you (as it is a VZW, not Alltel phone) and honestly, a lot of that phone won't work on Alltel as it is not designed for the Alltel data network.

    I'd wait...unless you can't. If that was the case, pick up a used Alltel phone from somewhere like ebay for the interim. I think that's your best bet.

    Maybe a little off topic, but it's kind of silly to get a VZW phone but keep an Alltel plan. Alltel plans won't allow the VZW phone to operate at it's full capability in terms of data.

    Thanks, I went to the Verizon store and they informed me that I can switch over to verizon if any of my lines are within 120 days of my anniversary. Guess I'm gonna go ahead and do it.

    I just changed from Allltel to Verizon. I made the change because rep told me eventually all Alltel users will have to make the change Verizon. At that point will be no option-might as well do it now or forced to later.

    That rep suckered you. There are no plans to force anybody to switch equipment and/or plans. There are still people out there in Alltel land using Western Wireless handsets if that tells you anything.

    Beware, Verizon Wireless is crippling even Droid connectivity if you are on an Alltel plan. See my post about the FCC and NCDOJ complaint.
