TPG Capital and GS Global Partners have purchased Alltel. The deal should close 4Q07 or 1Q08. If you would like to see a real life example of a company run by a private equity firm, visit any Albertson's in Cerberus Territory (which is the Southwest, Louisiana, and Florida). If run properly, you really notice no differences, and it may actually be run better. More information on the Alltel buyout can be found here
From the Reader Information Desk:
-Tracfone has a reorganized website (courtesy: Chris)
-An anonymous poster provided the following: TracFone's W370 supports Music tones and polys. For more information, go to www.tracfone.com/data and click on the W370
-AND... the Turk has provided the following:
Here is some Tracfone and Net10 news:
* Target stores have the Moto w370 on sale this week for $45.
* Target stores also have on sale their Tracfone minute cards ranging anywhere from 2 - 10 dollars off different card sizes.
* Some K-marts have the Nokia 2600 for $20, and the Nokia 1100 (+60 min.) for $20.
* As far as the Moto w370 coming out for Net10, there isnt a set date release, it'll just show up one day for sale in the stores and website...I'm sure it'll be here soon since its already been a month since it came out for Tracfone.
and will Refer-A-Friend return? it is anyone's guess.
