SBC was formed by the merger of Ameritech (former AT&T properties in the
Midwest), Southwestern Bell, Pacific Bell/Nevada Bell and Southern New
SBC and BellSOUTH later merged to form the new AT&T.
The corresponding wireless properties made the same switches.
But Seattle has always been Qwest/US West territory.
On the other hand, AT&T's cellular division has always been
headquartered there. I think AT&T Wireless was what Craig McCaw's
original wireless phone service ultimately became.
