release yesterday. Just for the record, the Banter is Alltel’s version of the Rumor 2, and is designed for users enjoying fast and easy messaging with a side-sliding QWERTY keyboard. In relation to this, the Banter features also a „chat-style” (threaded) messaging interface. In addition, it comes preloaded with Alltel Email, Yahoo! IM and AOL IM.
The LG Banter is now available at Alltel retail stores and online at a price of $19.99
after a $50 mail-in rebate. The price is for existing or new Alltel customers who sign-up for a two-year service agreement. A second Banter or a Samsung HUE II
is available for free with a second two-year agreement.
