Doesn't matter what Alltel gets, it'll soon be owned by Verizon Wireless!

McFly, you can buy an unlocked CDMA phone from South Korea and activate it on VZW. South Korea, home of Samsung and LG, have better CDMA devices than Eurpoean GSM devices... so not only is your arguement old, it's moot. Oh and as far as the UI, another old arguement as VZW has implemented new UIs on many of their current devices (i.e. env2, Motorola w755, LG Voyager, Motorola ZN4, LG Dare... just to name a few). How about you actually go to a VZW store and play with the new phones rather than reitterating what you read on these boards. VZW surpasses all other providers in almost every aspect. The only reason AT&T has customers is because the phones they offer, which says nothing of their service. I don't think people realize how dumb they appear when they rant about their provider being so good based on the devices they carry rather than the level of service the carrier provides. Do they realize, AT&T does not make these phones, they just allow them to be used on their sub-par network. Here is food for thought... offer cool phones to make up for poor service... enable wi-fi to make up for the lack of 3G... release an iPod touch that seconds as a sub-par phone to attract all the Mr. & Mrs. "Me too"... and they eat it all up... well the not-so-smart ones anyway.

#16, look at this link:http://www.mobiletechreview.co
".....30 percent of US buyers who bought an iPhone 3G from June to August 2008 switched from other carriers. 47 percent of the switchers came from Verizon,...."
Offering good phones DOES have benefits.... Verizon is not happy about this at all, despite having an excellent network. I believe Verizon made a mistake not to offer the iPhone first. er=31575

#24.... #22 did not say that VZW does not have better service than other carriers, he's saying that VZW cripples their phones, which is true!!! Plus VZW plans cost much more and they're the only cell phone company that doesn't have an after 7 pm unlimited nights and weekends option!!! This is why VZW is not "murdering" the competition as you guys are suggesting, despite having the best cell phone service (which I agree with you on).

2MP camera? dang. Hope they didn't remove the accelerometer. I would like to officially ask Phonearena to check their visitor's IP addresses to see if the Verizon fanboys are actually employees or affliates of Verizon Wireless (and / or Verizon Communications). I smell something fishy.

#25, his point is that people want to see useful comments regarding the Phone Arena article, not about Verizon's service. In this instance, the article is about the Alltel Touch Diamond, not about Verizon!!! Alltel is not going to cripple the Touch Diamond, like Verizon is going to do, that is an example of a pertinent comment. I agree that Phone Arena should change their comments option and only allow people with valid e-mail addresses to comment. This will sway some of these irrelevant and useless comments.

you petty my man. the reason everyone hates verizon is because it does it best to please their customers. I think way to much, and thats why people complain all the time, people are spolied brats. I am with ATAt and very happy, but i know that verizon is good. If i was not under contract with atat I would swicth when the storm comes out. BB is one the best phones i every had regaurdless of carrier. this might be their best device. Can any one loan me money to break my 5 lines with atat?

Subscribing to AT&T was a mistake... and as such... you should literally pay for that mistake by breaking the contract and paying the ETF fee. All jokes aside though, if you like AT&T stick with them... at least you are aware you are on a half-baked network... but when your contract ends... use better judgement

I'm going to say verizon is a great co. who dose what they say and seem to do it right the first time. That aside I have been with alltel for 11 years and i'm vary happy with the service, although at times I may think that the phones could be better, Like this one. with regards the merg i for one am thinking about not staying with verizon for two reasons. 1. the biggist is that I will have to pay 30 or more dollars above and beyond what i already pay for the same service or never renew my contract so i can keep the same plan. (we all love our phones so i dont think that will happen.) 2. Verizon always has this sneeky way of forcing its coustomers to do what vzw wants. (most recent: the forced push to the new data plans witch means for things you may not use.) any way thats what i see when i look at the two companys. TCH
