The country's four biggest cellphone companies are set to start their first joint advertising campaign against texting while driving, uniting behind AT&T's “It Can Wait” slogan to blanket TV and radio this summer.

AT&T, Verizon Wireless, Sprint and T-Mobile will be joined by 200 other organizations backing the multimillion-dollar ad campaign.

Beyond TV and radio ads, the campaign will include displays on Goodyear's three blimps, store displays, community events, social-media outreach and a national tour of a driving simulator.
