I received my form letter in the mail outlining that I will be able to in coming months choose a new device at no cost to me. Apparently I was in a divested market from the Verizon purchase of Alltel. Due to FCC regulations Verizon had to sell my account and that is why I received the form letter.
I was promised a comparable phone and plan as to what I have now. I currently have a CDMA smartphone and with my account transitioning to at&t I will soon receive a GSM phone that will operate on at&t’s national network.
The form letter was not specific in the dates but did state that I would be receiving additional correspondence.
More information about the divested markets can be viewed on at&t’s website:
