Will this let us out of our contract early?

Do Cingular contracts have a provision for this type of thing that will let us out early?

I'm really not dissatisfied with Cingular, but I want a new a device, and this will be the way to get it.

-Shizzo will not get out of your contract early. Rolling Eyes Sheesh I hate people like this.

AT&T iPhone?

Oh no! If cingular is going to rebranded; what consequences does this have for the iphone?
I would expect no affect on the iPhone or any other upcoming handset releases, except an 'at&t' logo.

Curious how intense the logistical planning has to be for such a rebranding effort (signage, new phones). It must help to have more than just a w...
Obviously, since Cingular is being rebranded now, it would obviously stand to reason that 5 months from now, everything that's currently labelled Cingular will be labeled AT&T, including new phone launches.

I'm guessing the alpha tag (which is the ...

Attention Cingular Customers!!!

This means nothing to Cingular customers! This AT&T is not AT&T wireless, nor does the rebranding effort have anything to do with the former company. Cingular is still owned by the same company(ies) that have owned us since the initial merger in '04.

Basically AT&T (formerly SBC)(Daddy) & Bell South (Mommy) have gotten married and taken daddy's last name. Cingular(child) will also be changing their name to be "just like daddy".

This is just a name change so that there is no confusion as to who our biological parents are. We are still the same people!

Again, I can not stress enough, we are not any part of the former AT&T wireless. AT&T wireless (Tupac/Elvis) is dead and everyone needs to accept that.
man they can changed they name 20 times they will still be as lame as b4 yall ppl dont get it ohhhh cool the i phone give me at break hahahaha the can realeased the i phone the lphone the wphone who cares they services its not all that they...

Signage and ads

Anyone see any preliminary branding yet? I saw an at&t commercial which popped "Cingular, the new at&t' at the end.

Does at&t have the exclusive/endless rights to the 'Cingular' name? Or a better question, do you think the name will ever surface again in the future?

AT&T, which consists of the old Ma Bell AT&T, SBC, BellSouth, and Cingular, does have the rights of Cingular. Cingular was a joint venture between SBC and BellSouth. SBC bought AT&T and took the AT&T name. At this point, Cingular was a joint ventur...

Is this possible, please read?

About one year before AT&T Wireless became Cingular I had not once dropped a call in over 18 months. Customer service was top notch and I was in heaven. Once Cingular took over AT&T Wireless everything went south, customer service as well a coverage in the same are seemed to give me problems. I am in the Dearborn/Detroit, MI area. Is this possible? Is it possible that a name change could cause these problems? Or is there something related to the infrastructure that possible changed.

One problem I have right now, is that there is a tower right on top of my house, but it does not have UMTS/HSDPA, but the tower 5-6 miles away does. My data card picks this tower up and gives me a 3G signal but with only one bar. Most of the time it rev...
Yes, its very possible. durring the merger, all of the AT&T towers had their switches replaced in the metro detroit area (I'm from the area as well, and worked for cingy at the time). This was done so that there were no hard switches (dropped calls,...

Who are you?

Maybe the new AT&T can adopt that classic The Who song as their theme song... Razz
