Little Rock, AR -- Alltel wireless customers can win $1 million to build their dream home in the "TXT2WIN $1 Million Home Sweepstakes," presented in partnership with Kyocera Wireless Corp. and featuring Extreme Makeover: Home Edition designer and TV superstar Ty Pennington.

Customers can enter the sweepstakes by sending the text message "home" to the number "123456." Once entered, customers can increase their chances of winning every time they send a text, picture, video or instant message. The sweepstakes runs through July 8, 2005.

"Wireless customers are just beginning to realize the convenience and the many uses of text messaging," said Frank O'Mara, executive vice president of marketing for Alltel. "Customers will be amazed by the simplicity of text messaging, and they just might win a $1 million dream home of their very own in the process."

Alltel has partnered with Kyocera Wireless Corp., a leading global manufacturer of CDMA wireless phones and devices, for the sweepstakes and will feature Kyocera products and accessories in the promotional campaign.

In addition to the grand prize of $1 million to build a dream home, Alltel also will award weekly prizes during the 12-week promotion, including:

* Cash payments to cover a single monthly mortgage or rent payment;

* Gift cards redeemable at Sears; and

* Kyocera wireless phone carrying cases.

"With my incredibly busy schedule, text messaging has become one of my main vehicles for communicating with my friends, family and business partners," Pennington said. "I'm psyched to help my friends at Alltel give out $1 million in cash to the lucky winner and excited to share my home design knowledge with some of their customers along the way."

As the star of ABC's hit show Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, Pennington is the vocal and emotional leader of a team of designers, contractors and artists who miraculously make over the homes of American families nationwide.
