    I have a new samaung hue r500 alltel phone. I am with verizon but I am still on the alltel plan. Is there any way to use this phone on the verizon network. Verizon says I have to have a verizon phone that they can't activate a alltel phone. Is there any way that the hue could be unlocked or whatever so verizon could activate it.
    Thanks
    Eddy

    We had one one old Alltel Nokia 6255i and two smart phones on Verizon & were paying $225.00 per month.

    Last week, I talked to Verizon about the new $80.00 + $15 per smart phone plan. I had to update the old Nokia to a smart phone to get the new $80.00 plan, so I updated it yesterday. Now I find I must pay $40 per month for the new iPhone for the next two years, costing me an extra $600.00 over the next two years.

    The new plan was supposed to cost me:
    PLAN ======================= $80.00
    3 iPhones at $15.00 per month ====== $45.00
    TAXES & SURCHARGES (Approx)=== $27.00
    TOTAL PER MONTH ============ $152.00

    Instead it is costing me:
    PLAN ====================== $80.00
    2 iPhones at $15.00 per month ===== $30.00
    1 iPhones at $40.00 per month ===== $40.00
    TAXES & SURCHARGES (Approx) === $27.00
    TOTAL PER MONTH ============ $177.00


    I should have bought a "Verizon compatible iPhone" on eBay. I could have saved $600.00.
    What a rip-off.

    FYI:
    Don't got to a Verizon store to transact any business. Do it over the phone or internet. The employees make the balance of their wages by selling overpriced cases, chargers, etc. An Otterbox costing $14.00 on eBay will cost you $99.00 at a Verizon store for similar item. An eBay $3 tempered glass screen protector costs $25.00 at Verizon store.

    If you are using the old Alltel phone, you should be able to continue using it. If you go to a new plan, you cannot use it. I just now realized concours1976's note was very old, but the info still stands.
