Welcome to the forums.
I don't believe the *228 will work with Alltel.
You said you've already upgraded your OS but what OS are you currently running? You can find out by going to Options > About or by holding Alt and pressing E,A,C,E. 1x would prevent you from sending/receiving data, but it shouldn't affect your SMS/voice calls.
Also, it sounds like the USB port on the device is going bad. Since you've had the device less than a year, it should be covered by the manufacturer's warranty. I would try to get a replacement device.
The difference between stupidity and genius is that genius has its limits.
When you take things for granted, the things you are granted, get taken.
Even a mosquito doesn't get a pat on the back until it starts to work.
Too many people miss the silver lining because they're expecting gold.
