BlackBerry Bold 9650 OS Officially Released by Alltel

BlackBerry Bold 9650 users have been languishing with some pretty buggy OS releases. Verizon’s latest was not so bad but still suffers from bugs. BBLeaks just spotted a new official release from Alltell bringing the latest OS to v5.0.0.810. Hopefully this solves some of the issues people were having.

Alltel Launches BlackBerry Curve 8530

Alltel keeps on trucking in the 91 markets that Verizon was required to divest in their acquisition. They let us know they have launched the BlackBerry Curve 8530 for $49.99 after $100 mail-in-rebate and one-year contract agreement. I am loving that low price along with having only a 1 year contract. Check it out at…


Bell & Alltel Also Getting the BlackBerry Tour

Alltel 8230 Pearl Flip Now Available – Verizon Users Left Out

This 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 www.shopalltel.com and at…


Alltel is Adding 5 Additional Numbers to Your “My Circle”

When Verizon and Alltel announced their acquisition I thought it would be the end of Alltel as a separate entity. On the other hand during that deal Verizon was required to divest 91 Cellular Market Areas (CMAs) that will continue to operate as Alltel until they are sold. I thought at first that these 91…
