I just went to that softbank site to take a look at those phones....i agree, they are nice looking phones but they are gsmphones and alltel is on a cdma network so, no, they are not compatible for alltel.
I'm looking through the cellphones on the English version of the Softbank website and I am loving their cellphone styles. I don't much care for the American style of cellphones.
Anyways, I was wondering if there was any way I could use a Japanese cellphone through Alltel? I know that Alltel does not, and will no longer offer service to Nokia phones and that if you have one through when you had a contract when Midwest Wireless owned them that you will have to purchase a new one of a different brand.
I know a person has submitted this question before, but it was more directed toward t-mobile. Any information would be greatly appreciated.
