Without research. I originally had Nynex, but I was upset about the way 
they changed my service agreement, so I switched to Cellular One. I was 
never McCaw or AT&amp;T Wireless. Certainly, McCaw was acquired by AT&amp;T and 
became AT&amp;T Wireless. But much of Cellular One was owned by 
Southwestern Bell, and that became Cingular when Bell South combined 
operations with SBC.
