    When can I expect to see the techhnology transition complete. I live in coastal South Carolina (near Myrtle Beach) and when VZW service is not available I am on ALLTEL as "extended network" The constant switching between VWZ and ALLTEL decreases my battery life. I can tell the difference when I am in an all VWZ area my battery life (stand-by) is much better. When can I expect to see VERIZON all the time on my handset and not "extended network"?

    The full network integration is expected to be completed by years end, for the most part. Hopefully you should see a difference on your phone by Summer.

    Overall it's hard to say because of unknown factors that could cause a delay. Since both are CDMA, it should make it easier, and it likely will.

    From what I've read, the biggest issue is the merging of Alltel onto the Verizon's billing system. This is probably one of the factors as to why you still see "Extended Network" while on Alltel's network. As I said, billing issues should be worked out by the middle of Summer.
