Full integration of alltel towers into verizons network

I was wondering if anybody had a clue as to when alltels towers were to be fully integrated into verizon's network and not seen as roaming towers anymore? I'm asking as my droid likes to jump to verizon's 1x tower in my area every now and then when i have a perfectly good 3g (alltel) tower i could be on and using.
It's not likely to help you in that situation. If there were an Alltel tower in that area your phone would still have used it. The only spots it will help is in locations where your phone tries to hold onto a 1 bar Verizon signal when there is a 5 bar Alltel tower available. Once they are integrated your phone would use what was originally the Alltel tower.
