    Does anybody have any idea why so many people think WA is ALLTEL? :mad:

    Here is a sample of the emails we have been getting for about a year now:

    There are tons more, but those are some of the ones that point to ALLTEL. The number has increased this week, so I figured I would see if anybody could figure out why. :dunno: We don't have this problem with any other carriers.

    The only thing that comes to mind is that googling alltel mycircle hits WA on the very next non-sponsored link.

    :lmao: :lmao: LOL! We're Alltel? I didn't know that.

    I think dmapr is right, TNDan's post about the My Circle press release is what comes up 2nd right under alltelcircle.com and people aren't that bright. There's your reason why.

    It is odd that it has increased recently as well. Maybe you can make a deal with Alltel for us to handle their customers issues for a small fee. :browani:

    Hey, didn't we talk about buying a carrier before? I think it was Suncom we were going to buy.

    LOL it's horrible that it's happening, but I think it's quite hilarious on how people can't tell that it's not alltel wireless...

    The only problem with buying both is that suncom is GSM and alltel is CDMA. Here on WA we have highly opinionated people on both sides that argue that one is better than the other. Are we going to operate 2 networks, or force one of the groups of customers to switch to a different technology?

    Well Alltel does have some GSM for roaming. so I think we could do both and buy Sprint too. I hear there for sale.

    Ok, so now we're buying 3 carriers, (4 if you count Nextel). Where are we getting the money to do this, and I don't think the gov't would approve all that going into one company. You probably could merge alltel and suncom, but I don't think the gov't would allow SprexTel as well.
