why do people say it won't go through, its a great decision! and a bunch of other buyouts have happened before between carriers, why would Verizon and Alltel be any different...people get so offended to hear about Alltel getting aquired I don't get it

well GSM is a better technology anyway so i dont care the ability of me to take my sim out and put it in a new phone is the best idea since the cell phone in my opinion. with verizion you have to call them and there are not any unlocked cdma phones out there you can buy and just start using

hmm, better technology? not according to JD Powerhouse. Not just JD-P but everything I've ever read on GSM and CDMA has said that CDMA is better. And the SIM card thing is just something that GSM adopted, I'm sure CDMA could use it too if they wanted. I agree that GSM is better when roaming to other countries but unless you have a good job or alot of money these days I don't think I'll be making alot of frequent trips to other countries, once you leave the US its hell to get back in!

Just because you can switch your sim card from phone to phone does not make GSM better than CDMA. CDMA is more secure, has more capacity, and is just all around a better technology. Besides you lose your phone with Verizon you log on put the new serial # in and you're good to go. Lose your GSM phone and you gotta go get another sim card first to put in your second phone. So tell me, which seems quicker to you?

why would it be better if you loose your phone you have just lost your sim card too atleast "VZDUB" has back up asistance so when you loose it you can still get your contacts and veizon had a hand full of phones that will convert when u go over seas ... and more comming im sure :-p

alltel is not gsm!!!! its cdma!!! read ur facts! i knw this cause im a verizon rep and i had alltel cust at least the ones that knw. they can buy our phones and put it on there account with alltell why u ask? cause they happen to have the same CDMA network like VERIZON does! this purches will make verizon the biggest and the most reliable network in the us! just hope the open application for phones and the use of GSM/CDMA phones comes fast that way at&sucks will have no hope and just go bankrup!

I am actually a Alltel Rep and we are really excited about the merger, its gonna be the best thing period bc in the end we will buy out everyone and be one cell company anyway. (prob) lol. but seriously think about Alltel Is the biggest REGIONAL carrier, & Verizon is the biggest in Cities in the US YEs In the Us ALLTEL AND VERIZON are bigger anyway! Att are number one COUNTING accross the seas, ANYWAY when u have the largest carrier in the city and ADD the largest Regional carrier what do u think? OUR SERVICE AS VERIZON will be the best service seriously NO spots uncovered, as far as the evdo rev's and 3g Look atr the Att coverage for 3G............................. THe have nothing on us or verizon plus we have MANY MANY MANY upgrades coming out, actually to let this leak, when we merge we are coming out with a tech thats 2 steps above anyone else as far as speed up&download, while everyone else takes it step by step, we will.................... be passed the finish line eating dinner
