Do Not Call Registry


If you have a cell phone in the United States, this is important information for you.
(Don't I sound official and important?)

In all honesty, it really is. Cell phone numbers are being released to telemarketers in February. You will be charged for the calls made to your number by them. It is important to CALL the Do Not Call Registry to stop this.

My understanding is this:

1) You can only get your number listed by calling. You can't do it on line.

2) You must call from the phone you want to have listed.

3) It takes 31 days from the time you call to be able to report telemarketers.

I called. The call took about 2 minutes to complete. Here's the number:

888-382-1222

Thank you for the information. I heard about this but haven't made the call, but will certainly do so today!
