Hm, every cell phone I've had in the last 7 years has pqrs on 7, and wxyz on 9. So do both my land line phones. At this point, I'd say this has become the de facto standard. I do recall "qz" on the 0 key back in the early 90's, but as noted, it didn't last.

This page is a good read, as well, and references the ITU standard assigning "q" to 7 and "z" to 9:
