    Are they all going to become Cingular accounts eventually? I want
    rollover and I have AT&T in Denver.

    Maybe they'll give you the option to switch after the merger. No
    guarantee at present. They haven't integrated Cellular One, Bell South,
    SWB, and Pac Bell yet after 3 years, how they gonna manage integrating
    AT&T. Might keep them relatively separate for a while (year, years?).

    My guess (purely a guess based on history) is that they will grandfather
    your current plan. You can then get one of the new plans if you want, but
    will of course lose your grandfathered plan and the ability to revert back
    to it. I was still on a Bellsouth Mobility plan through Cingular up until
    this past December.

    No, some Att accounts are becoming Verizon Accounts and some are even
    becoming Sprint and T-Moble accounts with this merger. (yay for number
    portability huh?)

    I heard that when the merger is complete, ATTws customers will be issued a
    Cingular Sim in exchange for the "old" Attws sim. At that point, Rollover
    minutes may happen.

    No way, too costly.

    Care to tell where the "I heard" came from or is this yet another
    baseless rumour that someone is trying to spread?

    Sure thing, I heard it in THIS newsgroup alt.cellular.attws

    Subject: Re: Cingular & AWS
    "I stopped in the Cingular store and asked the same question last week. The
    guy told me you wont see anything happen till around August or later this
    Fall. He said when it dose happen you will get a new Sim card for your
    phone."

    Is that good enough for you? Talk to Eric for more details as to who "the
    guy" is at the Cingular store.

    I doubt that would happen. There is nothing to gain by issuing a Cingular
    SIM, everything to lose. As a matter of fact, my wife's phone still has an
    old Bellsouth Mobility SIM. SIM cards can be reprogrammed OTA (over the
    air), so Cingular has no reason to need anyone to switch to "their" SIM.
