    Come about August, and AT&T Wireless Services will be absorbed into
    Cingular. If your contract has expired, I urge you to hold off on
    re-upping.

    The "Original" AT&T announced plans to reenter the wireless market, using
    the SPRINT PCS Network, beginning the day after the merger is complete, as
    the AT&T Logos and Trademarks will then revert back to AT&T Corporation.

    My contract with AT&T Wireless has expired, and I am planning to wait until
    the reborn AT&T starts up before making any decision.

    My major issue with the present AT&T Wireless is that there is too much
    uncertainty. First customers were urged to "upgrade" to GSM, only to find,
    in many cases, that the service on GSM was worse than TDMA. There were
    complaints about the quality and competence of the customer service reps.
    Now we're wondering what life will be like under Cingular.

    Frankly, I'm ready to bail, but I am expecting major incentives to get new
    customers on board the new AT&T, and the Sprint network is already up and
    running, so there won't be that uncertainty while AT&T builds a new network.

    I was perfectly happy with TDMA. I could care less about surfing the
    Internet from my wireless phone. I just want a phone that works when I need
    it to work.

    Of all the options available to you right now, the least desirable one is to
    re-sign with the current AT&T Wireless.

    Come about August, and AT&T Wireless Services will be absorbed into
    Cingular. If your contract has expired, I urge you to hold off on
    re-upping.

    The "Original" AT&T announced plans to reenter the wireless market, using
    the SPRINT PCS Network, beginning the day after the merger is complete, as
    the AT&T Logos and Trademarks will then revert back to AT&T Corporation.

    My contract with AT&T Wireless has expired, and I am planning to wait until
    the reborn AT&T starts up before making any decision.

    My major issue with the present AT&T Wireless is that there is too much
    uncertainty. First customers were urged to "upgrade" to GSM, only to find,
    in many cases, that the service on GSM was worse than TDMA. There were
    complaints about the quality and competence of the customer service reps.
    Now we're wondering what life will be like under Cingular.

    Frankly, I'm ready to bail, but I am expecting major incentives to get new
    customers on board the new AT&T, and the Sprint network is already up and
    running, so there won't be that uncertainty while AT&T builds a new network.

    I was perfectly happy with TDMA. I could care less about surfing the
    Internet from my wireless phone. I just want a phone that works when I need
    it to work.

    Of all the options available to you right now, the least desirable one is to
    re-sign with the current AT&T Wireless.
