Some Alltel customers jumped ahead PDF Print
Sunday, 04 November 2007 20:44

While the rest of the country moved their clocks an hour back yesterday, an Alltel Corp. glitch had some people losing an hour.

Some customers with service out of Charlotte; Raleigh; Little Rock, Arkansas; Panama City and Tallahassee Florida experienced the jump ahead. Alltel officials say the problem rested with the switches that handle calls or send new software to the cellular phones. The glitch was repaired- but not before some people lost an hour of their weekend.

The rest of America saw standard time return at 2 a.m. Sunday. Last year, the loss of the daylight-saving hour came a week before. A 2005 federal energy saving law moved the time back a week starting this year.

Alltel is the country’s fifth-largest cellular phone carrier in the nation.
