STURGIS, MI — Verizon Wireless announced that its Alltel customers in Sturgis and Three Rivers now have access to a full suite of Verizon Wireless’ innovative products and services through its indirect agent, Your Wireless Store.

The newly branded Your Wireless Store locations now offer customers Verizon Wireless products and services that are compatible with Verizon Wireless’ network. With this change, Alltel customers who want to transition to Verizon Wireless immediately can purchase Verizon Wireless service and obtain and activate new handsets at these Your Wireless Store locations.

For existing Alltel customers who meet eligibility requirements, Verizon Wireless is waiving its activation fee and Alltel’s early termination fee. Those eligible customers will receive a special notification in the mail with the details of this offer.

Alltel customers who may not wish to transition to Verizon Wireless at this time can continue to receive Alltel sales and service support on their existing Alltel accounts at Your Wireless Store in Sturgis and Three Rivers.

Additionally, existing Verizon Wireless customers can now be served at these newly converted Verizon Wireless indirect agent locations.

“At Your Wireless Store, we share Verizon Wireless’ focus on the customer and strive to provide customers the best experience possible,” said Paige Ludwick, owner of Your Wireless Store. “We are confident that all customers will continue to enjoy the great products and services available through Verizon Wireless. We remain committed to building lasting relationships with each of them.”

In Sturgis, Your Wireless Store is located at 120 S. Centerville Road, and the phone number is 269-326-3052. The Three Rivers store is located at 745 S. U.S. Route 131, and the phone number is 269-841-5116. Store hours for both locations are 9 a.m. to 7 p.m., Monday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturdays. Your Wireless Store is an independently owned and operated business. Verizon Wireless and Your Wireless Store offer customers access to America’s Most Reliable 3G Network and the latest and innovative equipment in the cellular industry.

Verizon Wireless completed its purchase of Alltel in January 2009. Due to its legal obligations, Verizon Wireless was constrained from rebranding this market area until recently. Those restrictions have been lifted, and now customers in Sturgis and Three Rivers are free to Rule the Air.
