Cell phone directory goes belly up

A start-up company that sought to launch an online directory for cell phone numbers has shut down the service after consumers and Verizon Wireless complained about the service. The start-up Intelius had 90 million numbers in its database, which it was selling for $15 a number to anyone who had a name and wanted a number. Although other wireless carriers in the cellular industry had been supportive of the concept of a directory, Verizon Wireless had always been opposed, citing customer privacy concerns.
