Without even going to the site, it sounds like the site is designed to
input a number and it will tell you if that number is a VZW number.
If it's not in VZW's system as a customer's number, they allow you to
send an invite to that person.
Here's how it works and what it's intended for, from what I've seen: A
friend gives you a phone number to contact them, you want to see if it
will be a free call (if you signed up for IN) or if you will use your
plan minutes for the call. Put in the number and it will tell you if
they're on the VZW network by saying they're IN or not IN. It appears
this system is independent of your contract or their contract, it's
only for checking if the person is a VZW customer...
