If I could dump my Touch Pro and get a Droid I would in a heartbeat. But I *need* to stay with Alltel (Verizon costs waaay too much).

So is it possible for me to go to Verizon and get a Droid?
If you find a good CSR I don't see any reason you couldn't upgrade your phone. I went from a Alltel Buisness plan with 5 lines 4 with data/insurance and nothing changed when we added 2 droids 1 eris and 1 blackberry.

Re: Alltel Plan VS Droid

Would I simply talk to a Verizon CSR and tell him/her that I want to purchase a droid but don't want to leave my Alltel plan and want to renew my contract?

Re: Alltel Plan VS Droid

I am an alltel customer I just logged into my account online through verizon. Chose to upgrade my phone and simply was able to keep my old alltel plan and I got the 100 dollar instant rebate because I did it online. Conversely I talk to a CSR who would let me keep my alltel plan after I told her that I was told that I could keep it but she was going to give me a mail in rebate rather than the instant rebate so I just did it online.

Re: Alltel Plan VS Droid

When I enter my account information into Verizon's "My Verizon" page it says I need to register, and when I go to register it tells me my number doesn't exist in the records

Re: Alltel Plan VS Droid

I was one of the Alltel customers that was absorbed into the Verizon buyout. I have never had any trouble with GPS or data, but there was about a 1 month period during the switchover where I was having a problem with dropped calls. I'm guessing it was part of the transition though because it went away and I've had excellent coverage on voice, 3G, and GPS ever since.

Just call them and ask for help setting up your "my verizon" account I had to have assistance when I initially set mine up as well.

Re: Alltel Plan VS Droid

SO call for help setting it up, go online and do the upgrade, and I get the phone and simply activate it, then boom? I'm good to go with a Verizon phone on Alltel? That would be scweet.

I guess I'd have to exchanges through Verizon though :P

Re: Alltel Plan VS Droid

forgive me for running this off topic, but how did you get the online purchase to work. I've been working the site for a couple weeks but can't get anything but a new purchase or a full retail price. is there a code or something?

If you're eligible for upgrade and your plan is compatible it will allow you to get the phone at the discounted price. If not, it will ask you to add or change your plan.
