Alltel 8230 Pearl Flip Now Available – Verizon Users Left Out

blackberry-pearl-8230This whole Alltel/Verizon thing has me confused. Verizon had to divest 91 markets that Alltel served when they purchased Alltel. It looks like Alltel is still going strong and showing up Verizon by releasing the 8230 before them. Alltel announced this before but the device is now actually available for purchase on and at their stores as of today.

Alltel is offering the BlackBerry Pearl Flip for $79.99, after a $70 mail-in rebate with a 2 year contract. I know Verizon users are waiting for their updated Pearl but word on the street is that it is coming soon…

  1. Not really sure why it’s complicated, Ronen, the parts of Alltel that are to be divested are still operating under the Alltel name until someone buys them at which point there probably will be a name change. VZW is not exercising direct control of those parts, so it stands to reason that there will be differences in rate plans, phone releases, etc.
