DENVER, Nov. 12, 2007 — Qwest Communications International Inc.

“With the proliferation in text messaging and photo sharing, people can stay connected to the people and things important to them with greater ease than ever before,” said Frank Simanson, vice president of Product for Qwest. “The new Qwest Wireless Message & More plans were designed to help customers take advantage of the many mobile ways to stay in touch.”

Customers receive additional value and savings when they bundle their wireless service with other qualifying Qwest services. Qwest Wireless Message & More customers may also choose to include video messaging for just $5 more per month.
