System ID (SID) Numbers

Is the information on this site helpful to you? If so, I am NOT asking for money, but rather that you apply for a new credit card with 0% interest on purchases for 12 months at: ZeroPercentCards.com

Is your credit less than stellar? Then check out the credit card choices at: YoCredit.com

System ID (SID) numbers
These are the network numbers that are used to create preferred roaming lists, or to simply find your home network ID. Please use the contact form on my page to send me any additions or corrections.

NOTE: I have recently made some notations to the effect that a SID might not longer be in use due to consolidations. I have reflected this data by denoting (gone?) where appropriate. This was done as I have not seen these systems listed in recent roaming lists for Verizon/BAM. If you happen to have recent information regarding these systems, please drop me a line. Thanks!

Subject: Re: Verizon/BAM/PrimeCo/AirTouch SID numbers

SID hint: for 800 MHz systems (which all former Airtouch and BAM
markets are), odd numbered SIDs indicate A-side, and even numbered
SIDs indicate B-side. (I have yet to figure out the SID assignment
scheme for 1900 MHz carriers.)
