Big changes are heading toward Alltel later this year. The carrier, or what has left of it after the merger with Verizon, will be acquired by AT&T in the second half of 2013. Of course, for Alltel’s 585,000 subscribers it will mean significant changes such as converting the network to GSM/UMTS and LTE. As of now, however, Alltel is going just fine and is adding new phones to its portfolio, such as the popular Apple iPhones.
Alltel this week announced that the Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX is now available for purchase at carrier’s online store. Alltel is charging $129.99 for the device with new 2 year service agreement and $629.99 for a phone without contract. Just don’t mistake the DROID RAZR MAXX on Alltel network with the latest DROID RAZR MAXX HD released for Verizon Wireless last month. The Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX features 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Advanced display, dual-core 1.2GHz processor with 1GB RAM, 16GB bulit-in memory, long-lasting 3300 mAh battery, 8 megapixel camera, and Android 4.0 ICS.
Alltel Wireless, the small carrier that focuses on value and no-contract plans in specific regions has added a new phone to its Android smartphones lineup. The phone in question is the Alcatel One Touch Ultra 960C with impressive slim design and 4.3-inch touch screen which is available at friendly budget price for just $19.99 after $30 mail-in rebate and new 2-year contract. If you prefer not to sign up any lengthy service agreements, the Alcatel One Touch Ultra 960c can be yours for $199.99 without contract.
