Companies like AT&T Wireless Group (AWE.N), among others, are
developing an ``opt-in'' process that would allow marketing only where
consumers give specific consent, a privacy protection policy that is
unusual among major U.S. industries.

AT&T, Verizon Wireless (VZ.N) (VOD.L) and Sprint PCS (PCS.N) have

treat hand-held computers with wireless connections in the same way
a[s] mobile phones.
