REMEMBER: Cell Phone Numbers Go Public this month.

REMINDER...... all cell phone numbers are being released to telemarketing companies.

You may start to receive sales calls.

To prevent this, call the following number from your cell phone:

1- 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 number or it won’t work.

More about this? haven't heard anything about cell phone numbers going "public" before this...

Mostly, verification that this number is honest?

It's like signing up for "no-spam" list... only to have that list given to spammers who use that list to send spam... ya know what i mean?

I can independantly verify that the number is legit. As an alternative, you can go to donotcall.gov and register. These are resources that my call center has listed to give to customers.

However, the numbers going public, AFAIK, is a myth...

I don't believe it's the Government's job to interfere with business. Smaller government! More calls at dinner! WOOHOO!
