i was told that for some reason the phone soon will not work and will need to exchange for a new one. This was from a dealer. not sure he knows what he was talking about. seems strange to me

Since unicel bought alltel, they did some changing of towers and we don't get some of our calls. If someone calls and does not leave a voice mail we would not know if we had a call. Some voice mail have came a late as 3 days to 2 hours. I have call c.s. and get the run around that I am getting my call. Not very happy about it and they say that I signed a contract. Yes I say but not with unicel. I could have a number of cell phone companies that don't have service where I need it. mad.gif

I know that Alltel bought out Midwest Wireless here in southern MN. Not sure about this Unicel outfit, although I saw it advertised here in town but assumed it was the old Cellular One.

I am with you. I have had some VM's come very late and they never used to. Boy -- it is hard to remember a day that we did not need them -- that wasn't that long ago.

I was just on Unicel's home page and it looks like they bought Alltel in MN. The Razor V3M is one of the phones offered by them. I believe the company is called Unicel Extranet. I guess I'm still with Alltel here in SD.

Unicel bought the former Alltel (Cellular One) markets in southern MN. This was part of the deal of Alltel buying Midwest Wireless, they had to sell the overlapping markets in order for the deal to go through. When Unicel bought the markets all of the current customers in those markets go with the towers. My guess would be that it is easier for them to swap out your phone instead of removing and reprogramming all of the Alltel specific programming/features.

Easier, yes, but I am sure you can't give them an old audiovox for a new razr. wink.gif

      Sorry for the late response.  I was on the ice Friday-Monday fishing with our pro staff group.  We fished each morning for tuilibees and fished a few lakes and wow can you see a difference between lakes!  5 miles away and you go from average size of 19" to 13".  My buddy Scott who produced the video and the skinny guy is using I think a Wicked 13 Long stem reel which a spring broke in the bail this weekend.  I am using either a 13 FreeFall or a 13 Black Betty 6061 inline reel.  I like the in line reels better then the spinning reels and I wont be switching back for my ice fishing gear.  When its warmer out I like the FreeFall because I can drop the line with just one hand and not have to worry about hitting the button to drop it and then reel in some to get it to lock into place.  Scott I think is using a 32" St Croix rod, he switches between a light and a medium rod depending on his mood lol and I'm using a Yogi Custom Rod 32" Medium Light (Blue) and my other rod is a 32" medium rod (Black) I switch between them so its hard to keep them straight.  If your looking for a good rod he does 100% custom rods so you pick action tip eyelets colors string handles its pretty awesome and if your looking at the top end ones you get off the shelf you are paying about the same for a custom rod from him.     Fish were very hit and miss this weekend.  We caught a few in a few different holes but nothing great but yesterday we tried a new hole and instantly started getting them on top of the ice.  Will be trying that spot this weekend if I can get out on the ice.  I hate fishing solo just in case something happens out there and my fishing partner is heading Devils Lake for a week.  We had a ton of guys come by and see what we were doing that were "Seasoned Tuilibee Fisherman" that were using the 3" daredevil and told us what we were using wasn't going to be working get frustrated and leave because we were putting fish topside and they were only getting sniffers.  Our rig that has worked great for us is a 1/8 oz Kastmaster (Gold, Silver, or Rainbow Trout) with about 14-16" of line drop to a 4 or 5 mm tungstun jig (White, Pink, or Silver) loaded with wax worms.

      Go to Fleet or the Cabala's and look at all their small tackle, hunting or shooting cases.
