Alltel offers three months of free service in promotion

What remains of Alltel is still offering deals for subscribers. As part of a back-to-school promotion through Sept. 10, new and existing customers with "My Circle" plans, Smart Choice Packs and Bundled Wireless Internet plans can add up to four lines to their primary account, with a $25 activation fee per line. The kicker: On each of those lines, customers will have three months of free service. The promotion is only available to customers in the 91 cellular market areas that Verizon Wireless hasn't yet divested as part of its acquisition of Alltel; the markets will continue to operate through Alltel until the Department of Justice and the FCC approve separate plans by AT&T and Atlantic Tele-Network to buy them.
