The Cellular Telecommunications and Internet Association (CTIA) recently revealed plans to build a directory of mobile phone numbers, accessible via 411 services. The opt-in list is targeted at professionals who use their mobile phone for business. Although privacy advocates are protesting, a CTIA spokesperson said the list will not be published or sold to third parties. Customers will not be listed without express consent, and there will be no charge to be unlisted. The service is expected to launch in early 2005. Of the major national carriers, only Verizon Wireless is not participating, instead suggesting that customers who want their wireless number to be listed should pay to be listed in Verizon's phone books.
