Please note that if Alltel does not receive full payment by the due date, the wireless numbers could be de-activated until payment has been made.
- Q: Will I need to provide a PIN to make a debit card payment?
A: No. PINs are not required for debit card payments.
- Q: Can I use more than one payment type per account?
A: Yes. Multiple payments may be made against an account, each using a different payment method. However, only one payment method may be used for a specific payment.
- Q: What is a Card Security Code, and where can I find it?
A: A Card Security Code is a security number located on your credit card. If you are paying with a Visa or MasterCard, the Card Security Code is located on the back of your card. If you are paying with an American Express, the number is located on the front of the card. This number is provided as a security measure from your credit card company. Alltel requires this number to help ensure your security as well.
