Top message: Defunct No Longer! by japhy
Replying to: Place a link by springaf
Alas, no link, just an internal email. Basically, he said that they're not going to go back on all the efforts made to consolidate the companies, and he rather politely said that Mr. Whiteacre didn't know what he was talking about. "Cingular has been, is, and will remain a national brand" is what the email said, and that despite the fact that "AT&T" (formerly SBC) and BellSouth would still sell wireless service under their names, Cingular would not be going anywhere.
Still, I don't doubt that it'd be a good idea to revive the name. I suspect that in the not-too-distant future, AT&T will try to acquire Bell South, and when the old AT&T is reunited, Cingular will be rebranded. Just speculation, though.
Either way, I was wrong - AT&T wireless, as it once was, is dead for good.
