"A or B" side?

Discussion in 'alt.cellular.verizon' started by Bob, Jul 4, 2004.

    I believe A/B side was originally when analog only cellular came out.
    The B side was usually the "wireline" phone company and A side was the
    other. With mergers and acquisitions this may not always be the case now
    though.

    B was in fact used for Analog, however your statement about wireline
    isn't correct. B was GTE / now Verizon, A was cellular one, now AT&T.
