Default Domain registration privacy options?

After reading an article in The Washington Post not long ago about domain registration info not being accurate--particularly with respect to spammers and porn outfits--I wasn't surprised to receive an email from my domain registration company (myhosting) that come January 1st, the domain registration info better be verifiably correct.

I had fiddled with my personal info in my domain registration a few years ago by using my initials for my name, slightly modifying my mailing address and putting in a fake (703-555-1212) phone number because I really didn't want my name, mailing address and phone number hanging out for all the world to see.

Because ICANN is going to insist on my putting in a legitimate phone number, and may also insist on my full name and mailing address but, they haven't clamped down--yet--on firms that offer domain registration privacy services, I'm going to look into signing up with one.

Does anyone have any recommendations for domain registration info privacy companies? Things to look out for when looking at any of these companies?
