Cell Phone Numbers Go Public This Month!

As a public service announcement, this is a reminder that all cell phone numbers are being released to telemarketing companies this month and that each of us can expect to receive calls from telemarketers in the near future. Not only are most of these calls unwanted, but billing for these calls will also be our responsibility.

To prevent this, one can call 888-382-1222. This call on your part will take about 20seconds and will place your cell phone number on a National Do Not Call list that will block all telemarketer calls for a period of 5 years


  1. Thanks. I called the number and got my phones registered. Pretty painless and it will save me countless irritations.

    I hope all is going well in Tucson. I am currently envying your climate. TT

  2. The FTC announced Oct. 2007 that your registration on the do not call list doesn't expire after 5 years. So you should just need to register once.
