Is it true? ATTwireless bought out U.S.Cellular in Gainesville, Fl.
Do any of USCellular reps have any info on this? Yhe reason I asked is because I went to the USCellular rep to ask about if they heard that ATTWS was thinking about buying them out, and he said, ATTWS has already bought out in the said area mentioned above.

U.S. Cellular and AT&T agreed to swap some properties. As part of the deal, U.S. Cellular gained licenses to offer service in places like St. Louis and Indianapolis. In return, U.S. Cellular turned over it's operating licenses and retail infrastructure in Southern Georgia and Northern Florida to AT&T Wireless.

Thank you for your answer.
Does this me that ATTWS will now be calling Gainesville, Fl. part of their own area?
I spoke to an ATTWS rep. on the phone, and most of the time, they have no idea where there is going to be new service available(area wise).
It makes think that they'll be pushing their service here during the holidays, what do think?
