NEW YORK, Apr 25 (Reuters) AT&T Inc., formed in November when SBC Communications Inc. bought AT&T Corp., on Tuesday posted a quarterly profit, boosted by strong growth at its wireless joint venture Cingular.

AT&T said adjusted earnings -- including its 60 percent share of Cingular but excluding merger-related costs and other items -- were 52 cents a share compared with average analysts' forecasts for 48 cents a share, according to Reuters Estimates.

Revenue, excluding Cingular, was .8 billion.

AT&T plans to buy BellSouth Corp. this year to take full control of Cingular Wireless, their cellular venture. AT&T now depends mostly on wireless and broadband for growth as its traditional home phone business has been declining.
