Cellphone numbers go public this month

Posted By on February 3, 2010

Some reading it hear might want to add their landline phones or cellphones to the National Do Not Call Registry. Thanks Sam for sending the email to remind me.

NewDNCLogoREMINDER…..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

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. It takes about 20 seconds.

See a previous post.

    Some time to receive sales or promotional calls is very disgusting, but now with the help of your cellphone service provider company you can give a request to stop promotional or sales calls.

    Still a good idea to register both landline and cellphone. Just added my cellphone without an issuue today. Thanks.
