Starting Friday, the My Circle 10 plan will expand to My Circle 15 and the My Circle 20 plan will expand to My Circle 25. Other plan features, including the monthly price, will not change. The upgrade will not apply to My Circle 1 or My Circle 5 plans.
To gain federal approval for its acquisition of Alltel, Verizon agreed to sell assets in 91 markets where service overlapped. Customers in those areas will continue to get service under the Alltel brand until another wireless carrier buys the assets.
Alltel customers migrating to Verizon will be able to keep their plans and My Circle features for the time being. Verizon customers have a similar, though more expensive, option with Verizon's "Friends & Family" plan.
