They had the commercials with sales guy Chad talking up My Circle, making fun of the other companies' sales guys. Including Verizon, who bought them...

2008
  • Verizon Wireless agrees to buy Alltel for $28.1B.
  • Connecticut RSA 1 (Litchfield, CT) market acquired from AT&T Wireless in 2005, was sold to Verizon Wireless. Terms were not disclosed.

2009
  • Verizon Wireless closes merger on January 9.
  • AT&T announces acquisition of 79 of the 105 divested markets.
  • Atlantic Tele-Network announces acquisition of the remaining 26 divested markets.

I hate how a company can be bought by other companies 17 separate times.
