This article is somewhat of a mess...I have no idea what BellSouth is after reading it. Was it founded in the 80s or after Southern Bell and South Central Bell merged? If I knew the answer to the question, I would edit the article myself. But I do not, so if you know, please clarify the article. The first part jumps around in the timeline. And confusing this is apparently another article named BellSouth. Perhaps a chronological history section would do wonders for this article. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 01:46, 4 July 2010 (UTC)
The following paragraph was added by an anon user who had been adding nonsense to other articles. If this paragraph can be verified correct, it should be put back into the article. -SCEhardt16:17, 2 October 2005 (UTC) 1. The image to the right is a photograph of the BellSouth Building, commonly mistaken as the BellSouth Corporation headquarters in Atlanta, GA. It is actually the main building for BellSouth Telecommunications (formerly Southern Bell headquarters) which is the phone company division of BellSouth Corporation. The BellSouth Corporation is headquartered in the Campanile building at the intersection of 14th and Peachtree streets in Atlanta, Georgia, across the street from the Colony Square hotel in Midtown. Verified based on the address for BellSouth Corporation Headquarters given at http://bellsouth.mediaroom.com/ -SCEhardT19:25, 6 March 2006 (UTC) It is correct, Campanile is the corporate headquarters, however the "BellSouth Building" should be "BellSouth Center" (my of...
Comment adeded by Leo3487 at Feb 21, 2006 at 05:18 am (GMT-3) This articles is out-of-date, say than Bellsouth has sales in Latin Ammerica.... All the subsidiary in Latin America was bought by Telefónica—The preceding unsigned comment was added by 220.127.116.11 (talk • contribs) .
Any information on it? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 18.104.22.168 (talk • contribs) . 1. I've doc'd this as a current event, and also asked for cleanup. It's really poorly written, especially on the front end, and needs major expansion. Iamvered22:08, 25 March 2006 (UTC)
Anyone else find it ironic that the Bellsouth's userbox shows the initals BS?--Viridis21:36, 24 December 2006 (UTC) Correct my if I'm wrong but I was just looking through this and found that it says Bellsouth is a Holding company of AT&T. Since AT&T bought Bellsouth and according to their own website (AT&T) Bellsouth is a subsidary wouldn't then the company be considered defunct or a holding of AT&T. SBC, Old AT&T, NYNEX are all listed as defunct on their pages. Just thgouth I'd share something. I believe the company should be listed as defunct, as seen by the others. I believe AT&T now refers to Bell South as AT&T SouthEast. 22.214.171.12403:20, 2 January 2007 (UTC) Odd, my internet provider's still referred to as BellSouth. This is what I am presented with when signing on.--Viridis11:39, 2 January 2007 (UTC) 1. Well, it's going to take a bit for all the 'branding' to get done. Donovan Ravenhull17:21, 2 January 2007 (UTC) Bellsouth and AT&T have said that it will take at least throu...
changed Holding company of AT&T to Holding Company: AT&T because the previous wording meant that Bellsouth holds AT&T instead of the other way around. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 04:07, 11 January 2007 (UTC).
I don't know why in the article it says BellSouth is defunct, It still exists as a corporation but is now a wholly owned subsidary of AT&T, So this information should be changed to BellSouth is a telecommunications holding company which is a wholly owned subsidary of AT&T. 188.8.131.5202:33, 21 February 2007 (UTC) 1. It has now been changed to reflect that after 10 years.Granthew (talk) 06:33, 24 November 2017 (UTC)
