If you had a one year contract your contract would be fulfilled in
October 2005.

When Cingular assumed AT&T Wireless' assets they also assumed all of
its agreements which would include any contract you had with AT&T
Wireless. If you had a year's contract with AT&T Wireless your
contract did not end when Cingular purchased AT&T Wireless. I'm
pretty sure that if you had failed to meet the terms of your contract
with AT&T Wireless they would have charged you an early termination
fee. Bottom line is that you are responsible for your contract til
the end of your contract term. There is no get out of jail free pass
by your being absorbed by Cingular.
