Cingular is a GSM provider in the United States.
A piece of crap provider. I signed with AT&T and they were awsome, as soon as they got bought out, everything went to hell. I can't wait for my contract to be over.
The company aquired AT&T Wirelss in 2004, thus posessing a substantially larger tower-base than they had previously.
Cingiuar Wireless has roaming aggreements with T-Mobile, but only for T-Mobile customers to access the Cingular network. Currently, Cingular wireless seem to be a "love it or hate it" mobile operator: Many blindly love it, many blindly hate it because they aren't willing to spend more than five minutes to solve a problem, or are in an area with poor coverage to begin with. And wonder why their mobiles do not work well.
Like its competitors, Cingular is consistently slandered by users who expect a mobile phone to be 100% crystal-clear at all times, with no dropped calls, no digital garble, and the realiability of a land line mobile. Yet, with over 50 million subscribers, it seems to maintain the largest footprint in the US.
b - I get reception in the basement of my house with Verizon, but not Cingular.
c - Cingular sucks! This seems to be a phrase that is repeated by people who have never even used the service in the North East...
d - Cingular is the best! They rock my socks off! Fanboyism, perhaps?
