What do you mean by "monopolize the cell phone industry as they did with landlines back in the 80's and 90's"?
I believe you need to read your history a little better so you know the telecommunications industry better.
The Ma Bell breakup was initiated in 1974, final settlement was agreed on in 1982, and the breakup was effective 1984.
Verizon was originally Bell Atlantic, so they arose out of the old AT&T also.
