    Verizon Wireless Makes it Easier to Switch to the Nation's Best Wireless
    Network Without Changing Numbers
    Tuesday November 11, 10:06 am ET
    Consumers and Businesses That Want to Switch Can Get Started Now on the Web

    BEDMINSTER, N.J., Nov. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Verizon Wireless announced that it
    has launched two Web sites as part of its commitment to simplify the process
    of changing wireless service providers while retaining the same phone
    number-known as local number portability or LNP. On November 24th wireless
    customers in the top 100 metropolitan areas will be granted the ability to
    change wireless carriers, without the hassle of having to change phone
    numbers; those interested in switching to Verizon Wireless can sign up today
    to be contacted regarding whether their number is eligible. The Web sites,
    one for individual consumers and one for businesses, can be found at
    www.vzwshop.com/lnp/consumer or www.vzwshop.com/lnp/business. Those still
    deciding whether to switch can review the FAQ section to learn more about
    LNP and what it means for them.
    "Verizon Wireless supports local number portability and has been diligently
    working to implement system upgrades, new processes and procedures to ensure
    a smooth and barrier-free transition for all customers," said Denny Strigl,
    president and CEO for Verizon Wireless.

    The Verizon Wireless network is renowned for its expansive, dependable
    coverage as evidenced by the many awards it has received, including The Wall
    Street Journal's "Top Choice," award and many reader's choice awards
    throughout the country from the Florence Morning News in South Carolina to
    Michigan's Saginaw News to the San Jose Mercury News.

    Verizon Wireless has also received high marks for its other differentiating
    services: Laptop Magazine and Network Computing give Verizon Wireless'
    high-speed wireless data service, the NationalAccess network, its highest
    ratings. And noted personal technology columnist for BusinessWeek, Steve
    Wildstrom, declared Get It Now(SM) to be the best of any other
    downloadable-application service available.

    Consumers and businesses that do not want to change their long-held wireless
    or landline phone number but do want to sign up with the wireless carrier
    that offers the nation's most reliable network can do so starting November
    24, 2003, the start date of a mandate by the Federal Communications
    Commission that allows customers to retain their eligible phone number if
    they choose to switch.
