    Through a series of events, I've found my Droid is actually on the Alltel network, though the plan is a recent plan, created directly with Verizon..

    You can check via Settings, About Phone, Status, PRL Version
    If you're 65XXX, you're on Alltel
    If you're 51XXX, you're on Verizon

    I guess that massive amount of Pandora streaming I did the first couple of months got me pushed to the Alltel network, since I know I was on the Verizon network initially..

    I'm just wondering what everyone else is on..

    Most of Verizon's Network actually belonged to Alltel even before the merger. Former Alltel/Verizon employee here. One big driver for the merger was verizon not having to pay Alltel to roam on our network. So while yes there are large portions of the former alltel network still being upgraded, most of the "verizon" network was alltel at one time anyway.

    Former Alltel prl# is 40059.

    Everything works great for me too. The vzw reps told me it wouldn't work unless I changed to a vzw plan which was complete BS.

    Alltel, as well, PRL of 40060. Sorry, but I pay $140 for two smartphones on my current plan, I wasn't going to go to a VZW plan and pay $50+ more for the same.

    Verizon 51xxx I live in a former Altel area though here in Kansas used to be very frustrating to do software and roaming updates I had to drive 20 miles toward Wichita until I got out of "Extended Network" now with the Verizon Upgraded network I'm a happy fella lol.

    So it seems like I'm the only person that has been switched to the Alltel network even tough I'm not a convert and the plan was initially started with Verizon.. I wouldn't care except that we have a Verizon repeater and for whatever reason, it doesn't support me now that I'm on the Alltel towers..

    maybe they converted the towers in your area. I know that verizon and sprint have had roaming agreements in the past. Maybe you were on Sprints towers and have been moved to the alltel towers. I could be totally wrong too:)

    I'm also a former Alltel customer and kept my Alltel plan when I bought my phone in Feb. PRL is 30052. The same Verizon plan cost $30 more than what I'm paying now.

    We started out on Verizon from Alltel, then the rep in store messed up our plan and didn't put texting on there at all. We called VZW and they put us back on an Alltel plan since my boyfriend was Alltel to begin with. It's like $40 cheaper a month.
