Alltel brings its second dose of Android with the Motorola MILESTONE
Even though it might pale in comparison to the handful of other high-end Android offerings available right now, the Motorola MILESTONE is still one equipped handset that can hold its ground – especially on Alltel's lineup. Regarded to be one of the handsets that helped aid Android burst into the mainstream overseas, the Motorola MILESTONE is now available for purchase through regional wireless carrier Alltel.

In fact, it's the second dose of Android for the carrier since the HTC Hero has been readily available for a while. However, customers will have to pay the premium price of $199.99 with a contract for this once relevant handset – which is a bit steep when you factor in other top tiered handsets at the same price point. Still, Alltel customers now have the option of either siding with the HTC Hero or Motorola MILESTONE for their Android fix.

has anyone else noticed that its kind of weird on alltel's website, they have a starter kit for the droid2, i noticed this sometime in the past couple weeks and then i saw this and it jogged my memory. i went and looked again to make sure and sure enough, it's there, along with the droid x and blackberry storm and a couple of other phones, doesnt make since to me, i know verizon bought out most of alltel but the rest was contracted out to other service providers depending on the area, i enter the zip code for statesboro georgia because its the only area near me i know of with alltel left but is there any chance they might be getting the droid 2 and x? or is it just some screw up on verizons and alltels webtech part? link to accessories bundleshttp://www.shopalltel.com/accessory-bundles (enter 30459 as zip) here is the link straight to the droid2 bundlehttp://wsf2.shopalltel.com/product/product.htm?prId=37656

They did and AT&T will eat the leftovers.

I answer calls for Alltel " I do so apoligize for ANY misinformation you may have received but Alltel has NOT been bought OUT by VZW or AT&T. A portion of Alltel was sold to VZW last year and those CX's have been tranistion last year. Another portion was sold to AT&T and they will complete their transition this year and yes those CX's will require a new handset due to CDMA tech not being compatible. Contract CX's are receiving free handsets and Prepaid will have to upgrade on their own. The rest of Alltel was purchased by ATNI which created a subsidarey AWCC that now owns the ALLTEL trademark."
