    For Cell Phones too. :help:

    A reminder. On 11/10/05, cell phone numbers will be released to
    telemarketing companies and you will begin receiving sales calls. Those incoming calls will be billed against your account the same as any other incoming call.

    You can register your cell phone number on the DO NOT CALL list, just like you did your land line home phone.

    I recommend you do it on line:

    https://www.donotcall.gov/default.aspx

    If you don't remember whether or not you've already registered, you can use that web site to check. Registration is good for 5 years. Or you can call 1-888-382-1222; however you MUST be calling from the phone you want to add to the National DO NOT CALL list.

    Never heard of that site. Interesting information.

    The no call list worked well with my land line phone so I figured it was a good option for the cell too. I didn't mean to mislead anyone.

    Hey it can't hurt. Just wanted you to know that the selling to telemarketers part wasn't true.

    Brad works for the largest telemarketing firm in the USA. Don't believe that line of crap he is trying to feed us. :)

    Believe me, if anyone calls on my cell phone I'll make it really clear that they should not be calling me. I mean, sure you have to work, but don't take my money by taking my minutes.

    GAH! I didn't think anyone had me figured out. It's true. I have my 4th graders sit there and make sales calls all day.
