Alltell MyCircle Adds Unlimited Texts

Alltel customers who don’t necessarily want to talk to the people they chose for their MyCircle plan can now text them instead. Along with their plan for unlimited calls to the five, 10 or 20 contacts of their choice, subscribers can add unlimited text messaging to their circle for an extra $8 a month, RCR Wireless News reports.

We have to wonder, though, just how long this new plan will remain in effect, since Verizon Wireless is planning to scarf up the smaller player.

According to the article, Alltel has had the unlimited text plan and an accompanying family choice option to its MyCircle offering in the works for a while now and will continue with its planned upgrades, including enhancements to its network, as long as it is still its own company.
