Cingular was strong-arming ATT customers to switch? Or, do you remember WAAAYY back when ATT and Cingular first merged, they went with the Cingular name because ATT was known for bad customer care? Haha, its all coming back...

No.

They went with the Cingular name because at that point in time AT&T Corporation was a completely unrelated company that owned the rights to the AT&T Wireless name.

The only reason that Cingular can now be rebranded as AT&T is because SBC (now AT&T) owns the rights.
