Sometimes when I turn on my phone, I see this scrolling in place of AT&T. Then it goes away after a few minutes and AT&T comes back. Anyone know what this is?

Cellular One was recently bought out by AT&T about a year ago in the south. AT&T must be fully converting their towers. Are you in the South Saint? Crazy question seeing that you are giants fan

They were still here until recently. Actually, the building is still open and they still have Cellular One on the neon sign. In Brenham TX, Giddings TX and a few other small towns going towards the Austin area still had them.

Cellular One is still the license holder for the GSM network in Frederick County Md. Although owned now by AT&T, we still are being served by Cellular One's network.
