    In the Los Angeles area, the A side carrier was originally L.A. Cellular until it was bought out by
    AT&T Wireless (the original) in 1999, which was then bought out by Cingular in 2004, and is now AT&T Mobility (2.0).

    The B side carrier was PacTel Cellular, which became AirTouch, which itself was part of the formation of Verizon Wireless.

    Pacific Telesis got back into the mobile game when they launched PCS service in the mid 1990s as PacBell PCS. This version became part of SBC corporate (when SBC bought Pacific Telesis), which eventually formed Cingular Wireless in 2000.

    I find it interesting both PacTel mobile services were each part of the formation of Verizon Wireless and the current AT&T (during Cingular's beginning)

    @M in LA - That L.A. Cellular is a good one...I don't remember it.

    Way off on a tangent...every time I see an L.A. Fitness (there are a few near me), I think huh Louisiana Fitness. ;)
