     Tunes and Tones Direct to the Handset
     Regardless of when shoppers visit any of Verizon Wireless' 2,300 stores
 nationwide, they will be able to choose from 18 different models that let
 customers search from more than two million songs from the V CAST Music
 library and immediately purchase and download their favorite tunes directly
 to their handsets. For customers who want to spend a little more time
 browsing, they can visit the V CAST Music library from their PC. Selected
 songs can be stored on a 1GB, 2GB or (for select phones) 4GB memory card.
 Of course, any Verizon Wireless customer wanting to download songs from
 their personal library can do so, quickly and easily using the RIP software
 when they register for V CAST Music on a PC. Copying and saving unprotected
 music to a memory card has never been so easy. Songs play directly from the
 memory card on any Verizon Wireless V CAST Music phone.
     Name that Song
     Music discovery has been taken to an entirely new level with Verizon
 Wireless V CAST Song ID. Whether at a party, a club or just kickin' it with
 friends, customers can download Song ID to their V CAST Music-capable
 phone, hold the phone up to a speaker and within seconds identify and
 purchase most of today's popular music. Song ID is quick, fast and totally
 designed for music aficionados who want their music now. And, with every
 handset purchase of a V CAST Music song, customers get two copies -- one to
 the handset and one to the PC.
     Directions to the Party
     Being directionally challenged doesn't mean missing the party. Every
 Verizon Wireless V CAST Music phone also comes with the ability to download
 a host of features that can be used immediately on the handset. One of the
 more popular downloadable applications, VZ Navigator(SM), provides
 turn-by-turn directions to millions of U.S. destinations and can get most

 select a mobile phone that fits their style, their mood and best of all,
 their wallet. V CAST Music songs are 99 cents from any Windows(R) XP PC, or
