Verizon says no to wireless directory
Posted: 10-Dec-2004 [Source: Verizon Wireless]

[Verizon Wireless uses recent survey showing only 1 in 10 wireless users would want to be listed in a wireless directory as further support for their position of refusing to make their customers' wireless phone numbers available for a wireless directory.]

Bedminster, NJ -- A national survey conducted by TNS and sponsored by TRUSTe, the leading nonprofit online privacy certification organization, recently revealed that only one in 10 mobile phone users said they would want to be listed in a wireless directory, and just three in 10 support the creation of such a directory.

The survey, conducted by TNS and sponsored by TRUSTe, also revealed that more than half of mobile phone users (53%) are against the establishment of a nationwide directory of wireless numbers. The survey, which polled 1,068 consumers, also indicated that 56 percent would opt-out of publishing their numbers.

Verizon Wireless has vowed not to publish or make available customers' wireless phone numbers for a directory. And since Verizon Wireless' customer base is 42 million strong and growing, a directory that does not include Verizon Wireless' customers would be incomplete and of little value.
