Cingular: Unlimited calling to AT&T fixed lines

Cingular Wireless may allow its subscribers unlimited calls to AT&T's local phone service as a way to knit the services closer together following SBC's merger with AT&T. Much like unlimited calling between subscribers within the same network, minutes between Cingular subscribers and AT&T landlines would not result in deducted minutes as long as the customers maintain a combined bill with the local phone company. The company completed a trial in Connecticut that enabled customers to pay $5.99 a month for the service. Cingular said it's still figuring out how it will expand the offering. The offering is the latest from Cingular and its parent company AT&T, which was formed following the AT&T and SBC merger.
