LITTLE ROCK, Ark. - Alltel is introducing a new prepaid wireless service that's all about "U." U personalized prepaid from Alltel offers an expanded phone selection, plans and features over America's largest wireless network. The service is designed for customers who want to customize a wireless plan to their needs and tastes.

"U personalized prepaid is flexible, hip, user-friendly, and built around what customers want - more control, exciting features and the latest phones on the largest national network," said Frank O'Mara, executive vice president of marketing for Alltel.

"Whether it's paying by the minute, day, or month, prepaid customers can select any of our phones and have a choice of enhanced features, including access to popular ringtones, games and wallpapers to further customize their service. It's really all about U," O'Mara said.

A new pay-per-day plan gives customers a competitive service with their choice of two of these features: unlimited mobile-to-mobile, unlimited nights and weekends, unlimited text messaging, and unlimited calling to a favorite number (wireless or wireline).

All plans include free nationwide long distance calling originating within the Alltel network, free voice mail, caller ID, call waiting and three-way calling.
