Telemarketing on cell phones
Pass it On !!!!!
Starting Jan 1, 2005, all cell phone numbers will be made public to
telemarketing firms. So this means as of Jan 1, your cell phone may start
ringing off the hook with telemarketers, but unlike your home phone, most of
you pay for your incoming calls. These telemarketers will eat up your free
minutes and end up costing you money in the long run.
According to the National Do Not Call List, you have until Dec. 15th 2004 to
get on the national "Do not call list" for cell phones. They said that you
need to call 1-888-382-1222 from the cell phone that you wish to have put on
the "do not call list" to be put on the list. They also said you can do it
online at www.donotcall.gov
Registering only takes a minute, is in effect for 5 years and will possibly
save you money (definitely frustration)! Make sure you register now!
