The Best Alltel Phones

The Best Alltel Phones

There are a lot of great Alltel phones out there. They are almost caught up to Verizon and Cingular at this point, as well they should be. They are in the eyes of most one of the top three cell phone providers in the country. Choosing a few of the best out of so many selections was difficult but there are some that stand out more than others, so here goes.

I think the first phone you should look at the Motorola V265 Cellular Phone. This is a great phone with a lot of additional touches. It has 128 x 128 pixel 65K color CSTN display. It has a VGA camera, great streaming capabilities and fast downloads. It has a touch screen and even a built in camera.

If you find that model a bit too pricey you should try the Nokia 2865i. It’s not a phone with hundreds of features, but it has the best reception of any phone on the market. Stuck somewhere that reception will be a lot more important to you than any camera feature!

If you just want to go all out and buy something with all the frills included you should try LG AX4270. This is a great phone that is actually very affordable. All the greatest new assets and nice touches like speakerphone.

There are many Alltel cell phones out there but these will give you a good outline of what the company provides. This is a great company to go to when looking for a cell phone and should be one of your first stops.…

Oprah’s No Phone Zone

I just got done watching the Oprah Winfrey show about talking on cell phones or texting while driving. The episode featured both people who have lost someone in an accident caused by talking or texting, or people who caused an accident because of talking or texting while driving.

Talking on a cell phone or texting while driving is called distracted driving. The U.S. Department of Transportation is working to end the danger of distracted driving on the country’s roads. Oprah is working toward the same end by creating what she calls a No Phone Zone. She has challenged drivers in the country to make the roads safer, and give up texting while driving. I totally support this, especially after seeing this episode of her show. Some of the stories-and pictures-were shocking.

It was a sobering hour, to say the least, but also one that caused me a lot of confusion. I know people talk on their cell phones while driving all the time, but have to admit, I didn’t know people texted while driving as well. I have trouble even comprehending the how of texting while driving. Texting seems difficult enough, what with those little keys, but to do it while you’re also driving?

How could anyone think that the attention it takes to text isn’t attention that really needs to be paid to the road in front of the car? And even if the texter thinks he or she is such an excellent driver and excellent texter that he can handle it, what about all the other people out there texting while driving, who may not be?

Why do you need to text while driving?

Besides wondering how texting while driving is done, I really wonder why. What in the world is so important that it must be transmitted right now, and can’t wait until the drive is done? And if it is so important, I think a person would want to either pull over or stop to make sure that the message is sent correctly.

If what’s being texted isn’t of absolute emergency-status importance, then why is it necessary to send it while driving? Why can’t it wait? And if getting where you’re going in a hurry is the issue that has people texting while driving, the texting ought to be able to wait.

As was brought home very well by this episode of the Oprah show, talking or texting while driving is a dangerous combination. I can’t imagine any situation where doing this is necessary. There’s always another option: either pull over and text, or drive and text later.

In the spirit of full disclosure, I admit I don’t have a cell phone, and I’ve never sent or received a text, so I don’t know what it’s all about. Maybe there are aspects of this texting issue that I’m unaware of-maybe it’s really fun or addictive. Or maybe not.

Maybe it’s just dangerous.

Oprah’s on the right track. Texting and driving don’t mix. To join Oprah’s No …
