    Verizon sold me to AT&T, ugh.

    Yeah, as part of the Verizon merger with Alltel, I am a casualty. My brand new driod 2... yeah, that isn't gonna work real well.

    The more info I get, the more it sounds like I will be forced to ATT for one day, then I can cancel and go back to Verizon. This is not gonna be fun. I'm sure I'll get some really messed up bills and will be arguing for weeks with ATT to refund my money. I also fear I won't be able to port my numbers back out.

    I guess only time will tell.

    Oh and what did the offer as a comparable phone to my Driod 2... an HTC Aria... what a joke

    I don't understand. What does AT&T have to do with the Alltel and Verizon merger?

    In certain areas Verizon would have had a monopoly. It goes way back to the A and B system of CDMA licensing. Where I live you can't even get Verizon, you have to have Alltel. The reason I have it is because I moved to the area when I already have Verizon.

    The creepy part of it all, the poeple who live in my town that are Alltel, will get moved to Verizon... AFTER I get moved to ATT.

    It is messed up for sure.

    That's the biggest bunch of baloney I've ever heard. If people wanted AT&T they would have had AT&T. I don't understand why the customer has to suffer because of this.

    I just found the map, I didn't realize how widespread this was... entire states are getting switched.

    I believe Verizon bought ALTELL a couple of years ago. Now they are turning around and selling it to AT&T.

    Is it an iPhone trade or something?

    Hahaha, highly doubt it's as simple as a trade.

    I wish... they won't even give me the Samsung Captive, which does seem to be a somewhat comparable phone to my Driod 2. If I want anything nicer than the HTC Aria I have to pay for it and switch my plan to an ATT plan AND end up with a two year ATT service agreement.
