\pagestyle{empty} doesn’t seem to work for page with \maketitle

I have a document. For the remaining pages, there are no page numbers, but only for the first one I want the number to be removed MWE is:

\documentclass[onecolumn,12pt]{IEEEtran}

\usepackage[left=1in,right=1in,bottom=0.95in,nohead,nofoot]{geometry}
\begin{document}
\title{ABCD}
\author{efg

%\vspace{3mm}
Electrical Engineering\\
University\\
address\\
email: $\{$email $\}$}
\markboth{}{}

\maketitle
\pagestyle{empty}
\end{document}

Use \thispagestyle{empty} instead of \pagestyle{empty}:

\documentclass[onecolumn,12pt]{IEEEtran}

\usepackage[left=1in,right=1in,bottom=0.95in,nohead,nofoot]{geometry}
\begin{document}
\title{ABCD}
\author{efg

%\vspace{3mm}
Electrical Engineering\\
University\\
address\\
email: $\{$email $\}$}
\markboth{}{}

\maketitle
\thispagestyle{empty}
\end{document}

this works! I had to again add \pagestyle{empty} before \begin{document} to suppress it in other pages –  Arun Desiraju Jan 4 '13 at 2:33
