ALEXANDRIA, Va., April 5, 2006 /PRNewswire-FirstCall via COMTEX News Network/ -- USA Mobility, Inc. (Nasdaq: USMO), a leading provider of wireless messaging services, today announced that it has received a notice from the Nasdaq National Market stating that Nasdaq has not received the company's 2005 Form 10-K as required by Marketplace Rule 4310(c)(14) and that the company's securities will be delisted from The Nasdaq Stock Market at the opening of business on April 12, 2006, unless the company requests a hearing in accordance with the Marketplace Rule 4800 Series. USA Mobility intends to request a hearing before the Nasdaq listing qualifications panel with respect to this notice, which will have the effect of suspending the delisting notice until resolution of the hearing. There can be no assurance that the panel will grant the company's request for continued listing.

As the company has previously announced, it also is restating financial results for 2003 and 2004, and the interim periods for 2004 and 2005. Those restated results will be filed prior to filing its 2005 Form 10-K.
USA Mobility announced preliminary un-audited 2005 operating results in a news release on April 3, 2006 and held an earnings call for investors on April 4, 2006 to review those results.
