See, this is the kind of crap that makes me sick to my stomach. God bless Alltel for coming out with a beautiful phone like this but what makes me sick is that a multi million dollar company like Verizon(the company I have now), doesn't have cool phones like this. The Voyager is a piece of shit! See what I'm saying? DAMN!

You know that was totally uncalled for. watch you freakin language!! nobody wants to hear someone talking or in this case typing like that!! that was so rude. "Tony" your mouth needs to be washed out with soap!

Yes, while it is a very beautiful phone, Alltel users had to wait a very long time for something like this. Alltel has GREAT plans, but never had a great phone! I will be getting mine next month when my plan is up for renewal! Can't wait!

I want the scoop but my contract is not due for renewal for 15 months. Shitty Alltel wont sell me the phone for a decent price, they want $265.00 retail. I guess I'll renew in 15 months with ANOTHER cell phone company. It seems Alltel only rewards new customers and doesnt care about keeping existing customers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am with you on this one. I too wanted this phone but since my contract isn't renewable until Sept. 2009 I would have to pay 265.00 also. I have been with Alltel for over twn years and have never gotten a deal.

Hey mary, Go to ebay, buy one and take it to alltel and have them switch to this one. Doesn't change a thing about the contract. It's way to get around it all. I saw a scoop for sale today on ebay that someone just didn't like for $100

My husband surprised me with the Cirtus Orange color of this phone and I love it already!! Its great for someone that texts as much as I do. I love that not every person on the planet has the same phone, well at least so far! It is crystal clear when talking to people and has so many options! Its just a great phone!!

I saw this phone in the mall and I almost pee'd my pants! It's like a golden orange twinkle reflected off of it into my eye and it was love!! This phone works great, is durable, I even use it for a radio show that I host...The sound is wonderful with my mic!

How long exactly did that scoop on ebay have left on it? because that price will sky rocket above $100. trust me, i want this phone so badly, but i have months and months to go on my contract, so ive been doing exactly that. searching ebay. by the time the auction ends its going for like 10 or 20 dollars less then retail. if i wanted to pay that i'd go to the store and have it right away instead of waiting for it to get shipped! and i saw the turquoise one in the alltel store...i swear i could have drooled all over it for hours!! So pretty!!
