The Pacific Telephone & Telegraph Company (sometimes simply called Pacific Telephone) was the name of the Bell System's telephone operations in California. It gained in size by acquiring smaller telephone companies, such as Sunset Telephone & Telegraph in California. It also provided telephone services in Oregon, Washington, and northern Idaho, until the late 1960s, when those operations were split off to become Pacific Northwest Bell. Entering into the 1980s, Pacific Telephone had assets valued at $14.5 billion, making it the biggest of any of the 22 Bells AT&T wholly owned, which also made Pacific Telephone one of the "crown jewels" of the operating companies. However, Pacific Telephone was one of the least profitable Bells, due to very tough local telephone regulations in California. Image File history File links Pactelephone. ...

Bell Telephone Company of Nevada was the Bell System's telephone provider in Nevada. It only provided telephone services to 30% of the state, not including Las Vegas. Because of its small size, Nevada Bell often was managed by Pacific Telephone, which also resulted in Nevada Bell not being listed in Judge Harold Greene's Modification of Final Judgement, stating the breakup of AT&T.
