    My understanding about this service was that Verizon mobile customers would have to OPT IN to it. Today I logged into my mobile account and found the Selects option under the privacy section.
    It showed that my cell phone line was automatically opted IN to this function. I had to manually remove my phone line from it on the screen. I have a corporate account so perhaps it is different than a consumers account but If you don't want to participate in these pushed ads I suggest you login to your account , check the privacy settings and verify that you have not been automatically enrolled in this service by default. Just can't trust ANY company to do the right thing regardless of what they say.

    After reading your post I went to check on my account. I'm on a standard family plan and both of the lines were defaulted to opt in. Thanks for the heads up.

    I too went and checked to find out that I was automatically opted in. Will take up to 5 days for my changes to be completed.

    Thanks. I'm slowly starting to dislike Verizon.

    I'm relatively new to Verizon. What is Verizon Selects and where do I go to see if I'm opted in or out?

    Same here. First paragraph said I was not participating but below that I had to set it to block it.

    Just checked, I was opted in to Verizon Selects. I also found that my preferences in the CPNI (Customer Proprietary Network Information) had been changed back to "OK to share" when I am certain that I had opted out of that a long time ago. I am not sure if this was before we got smartphones in late Spring 2011. Looks like we all need to check these periodically, but I'd guess that it could be as far back as the last contract change/upgrade.

    Mine says I'm not participating. I may be inclined to participate if Verizon offered a discount on my plan, but with no incentive why would I want to opt in for this service?
