Alltel Wireless launches ‘My Circle Reunion’ sweepstakes for customers


“My Circle” customers text for a chance to win luxury vacation with “Circle of Friends”

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. - In April 2006, Alltel Wireless, America’s largest network, sent shockwaves through the wireless industry as the first provider to offer customers choice and control over their wireless experience with the revolutionary “My Circle” calling plan, which provides customers unlimited calling to any number on any network for free. In celebration of the two-year anniversary of “My Circle,” Alltel is giving one lucky “My Circle” customer the opportunity to reconnect with their “Circle of Friends” and family with a luxury vacation at one of the country’s top vacation destinations in Alltel’s “My Circle Reunion” text-to-win sweepstakes.

The grand prize package features an all-expenses paid “Circle of Friends” reunion at the winner’s choice of three relaxation hot spots: Key West, Fla., Las Vegas, Nev. or Palm Springs, Calif. While enjoying four days and three nights in luxury accommodations, the “My Circle Reunion” winner and their guests will partake in their choice of entertainment activities. The entire party will also enjoy the culinary genius of celebrity chef Ted Allen as he prepares a special meal for the winner and guests. To help the group keep in touch long after their lavish getaway, the winner and “Circle of Friends” will each receive a new wireless phone and a $200 Alltel gift card.

Through May 31, “My Circle” customers on eligible plans can enter by texting CIRCLE to 102102 or visiting; new customers who sign up before May 31 are also eligible to win the reunion prize package. For official rules, visit

“This is one way we’re thanking our customers who have made ‘My Circle’ the success it is today,” said Lucie Pathmann, director of marketing communications at Alltel Wireless. “Whether they get together once a week or once a year, we look forward to offering the winner of our ‘My Circle Reunion’ sweepstakes and their ‘Circle of Friends’ a true taste of what it means to reap the benefits of being a member of Alltel’s ‘My Circle.’”

Alltel is also celebrating the anniversary by unveiling a special bonus number to customers, making “My Circle” even better. All customers celebrating their two-year anniversary with “My Circle” will automatically receive one free “bonus” number added to their current “My Circle” plan. Eligible customers who have 10 numbers on “My Circle 10” will now enjoy 11 numbers they can call for free on any network. “My Circle 20” customers will get a free 21st number. In addition, on each subsequent two-year anniversary on an eligible “My Circle” plan, another bonus number will be added at no additional cost. To receive the bonus number, customers can simply visit and insert the number of their choice.
