BASKING RIDGE, NJ — Verizon Wireless, the company with the nation's most reliable wireless voice and data network, has teamed up with accessories and apparel company, Paul Frank Industries, to create a line of stylish PDA and mobile phone cases and pouches. The accessories feature Paul Frank's classic characters and whimsical designs — Julius the monkey, Skurvy, the skull and crossbones, and the retro helicopter pattern. Perfect for fashion-forward customers, Paul Frank accessories will be all the rage for those who view their mobile phones as the ultimate fashion accessory.

The PDA case, sized to fit almost any Verizon Wireless PDA, comes screen-printed in the Skurvy pattern and features a faux suede interior, belt clip and removable wrist strap for easy, fashionable carrying. The PDA case also fits Verizon Wireless' recently introduced feature rich, multimedia phone — the Voyager by LG.

The mobile phone case is versatile and fits most Verizon Wireless phones — including the new Venus by LG. Screen-printed in the Julius pattern, the phone case also has a faux suede interior, and includes a carabineer clip and removable wrist strap.

The pouch, available in both the Julius and helicopter patterns, comes in printed neoprene with a dual-snap closure to allow the strap to be secured to a purse or briefcase and fits snugly over most clamshell-style phones.

Paul Frank for Verizon Wireless PDA and phone cases are available for $24.99; the pouches are available for $14.99. All three styles are available today in Verizon Wireless Communications Stores, including those in Circuit City, and online at www.verizonwireless.com.
