In 1995 when "they" were "Cingular One" ?? Don't you really mean
"Cellular One" !!

The Cingular name first came into existance in 2000, when SBC (now the
"new" at&t) and BellSouth, "merged" their wireless entities, SBC
Mobility and BellSouth Mobility, into a "joint-venture", which was now
branded as Cingular.

Over the years, various miscellaneous entities (I assume Cellular One)
were taken over by SBC Mobility, or BellSouth Mobility, or post-2000
by Cingular.
