    I am curious now with this buyout of Alltel if they will now try to release anything major this year in the way of phones. The RAZR Maxx is out, the RAZR 2 is coming to Verizon, many other interesting and impressive phones are on the way. Will Alltel actually release anything or will they just kinda hold off on releasing stuff both phones, and services until this is all closed and done.???

    I don't think the end user is going to be affected by the buyout in any significant way any time soon. I would look for slight changes in the long term direction of the company.

    Phones that Alltel planned to release will still be released. I would expect they will continue to release phones of the same quality and at the same pace they have in the past.

    Yea, maybe Alltel will be able to a expand to nationwide (or something close) standard faster with the help of a merger.

    I read the yahoo article and found that they will work together on future growth:


    I look forward to seeing Alltels expansion.

    From what I understand they will be keeping the upper management in tact. If anything I'd expect to see aggressive data and voice expansion and the same old snail pace for releasing phones(they test them like crazy).

    Obviously you haven't experienced the Wafer! :) The thing has a terrible problem with an echo.

    I don't have any inside knowledge of this but my hunch is that they did test it. But the batch they tested were fine, and a small manufacturing defect either in the software or something else of the phones produced for mass shipping were affected. Because it seems not all of them have it....

    The few people I know with the Wafer haven't had any echo problems with it whatsoever.

    A customer called me this morning and asked about the purchase. He proudly stated to me "this means I don't have to pay my bill, right?" That was my funniest call all day. Especially because he was 100 percent serious.

    Alltel is in fact working directly with Samsung right now to get a fix for this issue out.

    My friend didn't have a price yet. But I expect it to be around $199.99 but thats just my guess. Alltel will probally put a preorder thing on the website with the price around july 1st..

    Thanks! I love my v3c and was hoping a updated razr would be out by the time I could get a new phone. Was thinking about the v3m but with Razr 2 V9m coming I will be looking into that one. Thanks again for the info.

    Your Welcome!
    I can't wait for the new razr. Have you been to Motorola's website and looked at their stuff on the razr 2? Its pretty neat.

    This one is neat too:

    Does anyone know if Alltel and Motorola will be releasing a follow-up to the e815 in the future? I like having most of the funtionality of a RAZR but in something that is sturdy ... It would be nice to have a version w/o a whip antenna.
