What what's Verizon's name before they changed to Verizon? I cannot think of it!
It depends on where you are, in my area it was Bell Atlantic/NYNEX mobile.
In dallas it was primeco and gte
It was also Airtouch in some areas.
In East TN it was GTE Wireless.
Verizon is a merger between several different companies from all across the nation. Such as the New England states, I believe they were NYNEX or Atlantic Bell. In Colorado, I'm betting they were either Airtouch or Comm-Net. In my area (rural Utah), they werer Comm-Net.
Verizon was formed from Airtouch(who just before that had bought Commnet), GTE/Contel, Bell Atlantic Mobile, and Primeco. Here in California, we had both GTE/Contel and Airtouch.
wasnt airtouch the big pager company in the mid 90's?? I think that's who my pager was through.
