AT&T Mobility was spun off from Cingular Wireless which was founded in the year 2000 by Bellsouth and SBC Communications.
SBC Communications bought out AT&T in the year 2005 and rebranded itself as AT&T INC.
After a series of acquisitions by Cingular Wireless the company itself was acquired by AT&T INC in December of 2006 through the sale of Cingular Wireless’s parent company, Bellsouth to AT&T INC.
In 2007 Cingular Wireless was rebranded as “The New AT&T,” and today it is simply known as AT&T or AT&T Mobility.
AT&T Mobility sells a variety of wireless plans, including data only plans for tablets, wearables and hotspots, as well as phone plans for consumers and businesses. Both postpaid and prepaid options are available.
Those working for select businesses may be eligible for corporate discounts on service through their employer.
