Vodafone has a 45% interest in *Verizon* not Verizon Wireless.
Vodafone has a 45% interest in Cellco Partnership, the joint venture operating as Verizon Wireless.
Verizon Wireless is of course part of Verizon.
It's only "part of" Verizon inasmuch as Verizon owns part of the joint venture. Verizon is not 100% owner of Verizon Wireless; never was.
I'm not sure how the FCC would look upon a foreign-owned telco. I do know that radio and TV stations are required to be owned by American companies, but I'm not sure about telcos.
