    No such thing exists. Tower locations are private information and are not released to the public.

    American Tower is a website that has a listing/map of all sorts of tower locations. Not necessarily of ones OWNED by Verizon Wireless, but some of them might have Verizon on them.

    Here's the link.

    Technically, the quoted statement below is inaccurate.

    There is no master listing of cell sites, that is true. Even the FCC does not know where all the sites are located. However, it is incorrect to state that tower locations are private information and are not released to the public.

    While you may not get a COMPLETE listing of the towers in your area, there are several resources that do provide at least some of this information to the public, including the FCC.

    Some such resources are:
    The FCC's Antenna Site Registration (ASR) database.
    Site listings provided by both publicly-, and privately-owned tower company web sites (such as American Tower, Crown Castle, SBA, Global Tower Partners, and even Tarpon Towers - just to plug a smaller company who's President is a really nice guy, friend, and former colleage in the tower rental biz, etc..)

    Another good resource is: t-mobiletowers which will list many T-Mobile sites as well as other carriers renting space on those towers.

    Other resources include:
    The various tower hunting clubs, dropped call databases, scanner clubs, and the like.
    Also, tower owner data is generally public record down at the local City Hall as it relates to permitting and zoning notice requirements, etc... And finally, there are some apps for the Android and iPhone platforms that can identify nearby towers by decoding their overhead messaging streams (Note: Last I checked, the iPhone app requried a jailbroken phone.)

    Or just drive down the street. Cell towers and rooftop sites are not difficult to spot, once you know what to look for.

    So, while there is no "master list" per se, it is certainly not true that tower locations are private information and/or not released to the public. You just have to do a little digging.
    Hope this helps.

    Many of the carriers offer online listings of their sites (but not the owners of the sites) for collocation leasing purposes. MMillard is right: It's not too hard to do very little research to find out who the landlord is today. Carrier reps to it all the time.
