Do Not Call Registry for your Cell Phones!
There has been a lot of talk recently about Cell phone numbers being released to Telemarketers. With more than 30% of people without Land Lines, this is the next big group for them to target. You can now call the Federal Government's "Do Not Call Registry". That number is 1-888-382-1222.
Though this is available, it is not as scary as you think. There have been many reports that you do NOT need to register your numbers because the numbers HAVE NOT been released.
However, for those of you who live by the "just in case" theory the following will let you register anyway:
Be sure to call from the phone you're wanting to register. Call from all of your phones, even those you think that you've registered in the past. The call is easy. They will ask you to press 1 for English and then to press 1 again if you want to register your phone. Then just type in the number you're calling from and your done!
It takes 31 days before they are no longer able to call you. After that, if you get a solicitation call, get the company name and then file a complaint at DoNotCall.gov.
Simple as that!
