Since being setup with Alltel their service has been second to none. The staff are really friendly, quick to reply and very helpful. It's also made a huge difference in making sure we don't miss calls with their routing options and they setup a professional sounding message for when we can't answer.

I'm very happy we chose Alltel and wouldn't hesitate to recommend to others.
