    Alltel uses CDMA and doesnt use sim cards. Is that correct? And if so can an unlocked blackberry storm be used with them??

    Alltell DOES use CDMA. However, you would need the phone to be flashed, not unlocked, to use Alltel...I'm not sure if that can be done

    It works great. I am writing this from my storm on AllTel. All you have to do is follow the instructions detailed on the site. Just search 'activate a storm on AllTel" be sure when you call to have the esn added tell alltel it is a curve not a storm

    I would think since Alltel was purchased by Verizon back in February, that there shouldn't be much of a problem??...

    And billing... Alltel custies can come into a VZW store and pay their bill now.... Figuring that part the first time was a doozie... =)

    yeah, especially at the rate that trainings are going these days...you get more customers, and more services, but less time to train on the new products. double edged sword...glad i bailed when i did!

    hahaha, good point. I care less about the trainings then I do about time to finish my other in-store, but non-customer related tasks. We run a pretty tight ship.... starting to get sloppy though due to lack of time available

    or just tell everyone "two weeks" in response to every inquiry you get, no matter what the topic. consistency is the key.
