East Texans Call Home For Free

Those not able to be with family members on Christmas were able to hear their voices thanks to Alltel.

For the third year in a row Alltel provided the use of cell phones for those who attended the Salvation Army dinner in Tyler.  The calls were free to anywhere in the U.S. and Mexico.  For many it was a great way to wish those they love... a merry Christmas.

"My wife and kids (are out of town), I didn't get a chance to go due to mechanical problems, but it's good to know I had the chance to talk to them and hopefully I can get down their to see them hopefully before New Year," said Sam Adams.

Alltel plans to continue the free phone calls each Thanksgiving and Christmas.
