    ALLTEL is still in the PRL for Myrtle Beach, even though VZW just
    turned up native coverage (at 1900) there. IIRC, ALLTEL Augusta is
    still in, so there's fallback in Aiken County too. :p

    Former GTE -- GTE bought Hawaiian Telephone way back when so GTE (by
    default, since they've always been the only ILEC in Hawaii) got the
    B-side license...and GTE became part of Verizon Communications so GTE
    Mobilnet/GTE Wireless in Hawaii became VZW.

    (Verizon Communications is selling the Hawaii *landline* business off
    to an investor group, but *VZW* is *not* leaving Hawaii.)

    The A-side licenses for the different islands went to various
    companies -- McCaw/AT&T, BellSouth/Cingular, TDS/US Cellular -- but I
    believe that now, after various license swaps, AT&T now has all the
    A-side licenses in Hawaii.

    As for PrimeCo...which was a partnership of BAM and AirTouch:

    - PrimeCo Hawaii was sold to SPCS relatively early on
    - PrimeCo Virginia (Richmond etc.) was sold to CFW/Intelos/nTelos
    - PrimeCo Chicago was not folded into VZW (because GTE dba Ameritech
    Cellular was already there) and was spun off into an independent
    company, which USCC bought...hence how USCC got into Chicago
    - all other PrimeCo markets (FL, WI, TX, Mobile AL, MS Gulf Coast)
    were folded into VZW -- however, VZW sold most of the ex-PrimeCo
    spectrum in Houston to AT&T, and retained some for future use. (VZW
    may have sold off ex-PrimeCo spectrum in other areas, but I'm not
    aware of them having done so.)

    In Panama City (Bay County) FL, VZW has both an ex-PrimeCo license at
    1900 and an ex-Price license at 850; currently, from what I've heard,
    VZW is running CDMA only at 1900 there, to match the rest of FL. (The
    oddball 850 license could very well get sold to AT&T/Cingular, as AT&T
    has no license at all for Bay County -- the only county in FL where
    AT&T has no license -- and Cingular doesn't have much spectrum there.)
