    If someone calls you, report it at that site too. There are several ways people can legally call you, however, e.g. charities.

    Its so simple.... I dialed their number, pressed 1 for english, pressed 1 again, dialed in my phone number and then i was done.... If only all aspects of anything dealing with the govt was that easy like taxes =( (Too bad I dont have to file them for like about 10 more years :D )

    Starting Jan 1, 2005, all cell phone numbers will be made public to telemarketing firms.
    Well if that was indeed the date, made no difference to me, I've never gotten a telemarketer call on my cell.

    Contrary to what some variants of the email rumor claim, there is no 31-day or December 15 deadline for adding cell phone numbers to the Do Not Call list - indeed, there is no deadline whatsoever.
    i actually got a little scared there, but phfffeeew i feel better

    DO NOT CALL registry

    REMEMBER: Cell Phone Numbers Go Public next month.

    REMINDER.... all cell phone numbers are being released to telemarketing companies and you will start to receive sales calls.

    .... YOU WILL BE CHARGED FOR THESE CALLS even if the message is saved on your phone, you will be charged for the minutes to listen to it. To prevent this, call the following number from your cell phone: 888-382-1222

    It is the National DO NOT CALL list. It will only take a minute of your time. It blocks your number for five (5) years. You must call from the cell phone number you want to have blocked. You cannot call from a different phone number.


    If you prefer... you can register online instead.

    You could register your cell phone on the Do Not Call Registry's website from day 1.

    Not that it does much good, I still get solicitation calls.
    That which does not kill me has made a tactical error.
