    I remember now...

    Kauai: Ameritech -> Cingular -> AT&T
    Oahu: Honolulu Cellular (BellSouth, may have been McCaw at one time)
    -> AT&T

    Yes, that was it: Kauai was where I could use my Ameritech phone without a
    roaming charge. (Had to switch it to A, though.)

    Wow!! A bunch of geezers who remember how
    used to be. Actually as I remember it, the carrier
    which I had was on analog "B" but then went to
    "TDMA" , but remained on the 800 Mhz "B" side.
    And, further ancient history; ATTWS offered "PCS"
    (touchtone) on old 800 Mhz analog!!!
