Do you know off the top of your head how many people are uniquely identifiable by just their zip+4?  Anyone?  I'm not asking in addition to other data, just about zip+4 btw.

My understanding is that VZ is using subscriber's addresses in order to tag http traffic with ZIP+4, which is then later shared with advertisers (similar to Feeva http://www.wired.com/epicenter/2010/06/coming-soon-web-ads-tailored-to-your-zip-4/all/1 )
