Little Rock -- Alltel Wireless and LG Electronics MobileComm U.S.A., Inc. (LG Mobile Phones) announced that the highly anticipated GlimmerTM by LG will be exclusively available in Alltel retail stores and online at shopalltel.com beginning March 13. With a slide-out keypad and touch-screen interface, the LG Glimmer incorporates traditional phone functions with the latest multimedia features.

The LG Glimmer is loaded with a 2 MP camera with video capabilities, an MP3 player with customizable equalizer, an expandable memory slot and is GPS capable. This slick phone is rich with several of Alltel's Axcess applications including Alltel Navigation, Axcess Search, CityID and Axcess TV. In addition, users can listen to their favorite music while utilizing other multimedia features on the phone, such as taking photos, recording video or sending text messages. The Glimmer also features 3D graphics support and 128MB of internal memory.

"With touch-screen phones revolutionizing wireless, the LG Glimmer from Alltel has an innovative new touch interface while offering the convenience of a slide-out physical keypad," states Brian Ullem, vice president of device strategy for Alltel Wireless. "Its large display and multimedia capabilities allow our customers to access and manage their video and music with a simple touch."

"Consumers will appreciate the durable metal body of this elegant, user-friendly mobile phone," said Ehtisham Rabbani, vice president of product strategy & marketing at LG Mobile Phones. "With its slim form factor and large sliding touch screen the Glimmer by LG is another example of forward-thinking technology and design."

Alltel Wireless is offering the Glimmer by LG for $249.99 after a $100 mail-in-rebate. This discounted price is available to new customers who sign-up for a two-year service agreement and to existing eligible customers on qualifying rate plans. All Alltel customers who purchase the LG Glimmer and are on a qualifying rate plan are able to receive "My Circle," Alltel's exclusive calling feature allowing customers to receive unlimited calling to any five, 10 or 20 numbers, any network. In addition, Alltel was the first to offer Anytime Plan Changes, giving customers the flexibility to change their calling plans at any time, without extending their current contract.

The LG Glimmer also supports Alltel's new service, Axcess Voice2TXT. The service, which is available on any Alltel Wireless SMS text message capable phone, quickly converts incoming voicemails to text messages in the customer's inbox and also allows customers to store and forward converted voicemails as regular text messages.
