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

      For all you pan fish lovers, check out this beautiful pumpkin seed I found guarding the bed while I was out bass fishing. Couldn't help but get some video of this beaut! Enjoy!

      My live well has an adjustable shut off valve in side for filling and running fresh water. If I don't turn it down to a tickle when I have fish in it, it will over flow into the boat once full because the pump is pumping faster then the overflow can keep up.  Not sure if you have one of them in yours?  I've even had a few big eyes flipping around in there hit the valve open more.

      I believe minnows are a class of fish that remain small throughout their lives. They are part of the food chain and because of their small size we take advantage of their position in the ecosystem and use them for bait. There are exceptions of course but, as an example, for the most part adult golden shiners will typically grow to about 3" - 5" long. Adult fathead minnows will be 2" - 3" long typically.

      If the hoses or hose connections are not leaking check : Live well intake connection, make sure that it is screwed on tight into the transom and that it is sealing. Could be live well splash over also if you are in rough water, but probably not with your type of leak. It may still be leaking rivets as they may not leak unless you put a lot of water inside of the boat. It does sound like you have a bad connection in one of your live well connections! Cliff

      Just wondering if any one will give me pointers on this lake??  Not specific spots.  Going to be at Pocahontas Resort July 1 - July 8th.  I am bass guy for most part but have kids (6 & 4) that love to fish for panfish and want them to keep entertained.  Any tips or information would be greatly appreciated!!!  Thanks!
