and access personal information services such as an address book, calendar and to-do list.

"By working with InfoSpace, we were able to quickly roll out a wide range of personalized, fully customizable mobile Internet
services, under the trusted Pacific Bell Wireless brand, that are most conducive to how people use and interact with their
mobile phone," said Stephen Carter, president and CEO of SBC Wireless. "We look forward to continuing our work with
