I just registered my phone.you will probably want to as well.

In a few weeks, cell phone numbers are being released to telemarketing
companies and you will start to receive sales calls. Call this
number from your cell phone 888-382-1222. It is the national Do Not
Call list. It blocks your number for 5 years. Please pass on,

You may want to share. Your private cell phone numbers will be published
and shared w. telemarkets. This Do Not call *800 must be called from the
cell phone u want to put on list

Thanks for the tip. Although I don't have a cell phone, all three of my adult offspring do as well as several of my grandkids. I passed along the info for them to get on the list.

All the news agencies around here say this is a internet hoax and it's unlawful for telemarketers to call cell phone numbers even with the possibility of listing the cell phone numbers. :shock: :roll:
I called the number, no hoax, you can also register on the internet, they give you the address when you call...Jake.

Oh great and powerful Wizard please except my deepest apoligies for questioning your great wisdom. :D For some unknown reason known only to them our local news stations more or less reported it as a hoax. Sorry for jumping the gun. :wink:

FWIW Snopes says that while it's not exactly an urban legend, there's no need for you to rush to your phone to register a "do not call" number. See their take on the issue here

This is also the same info that's been in our local newspaper for past week or so. :eek:

I prowled around Snopes for 2 hours trying to locate what they had to say. Thanks Nobody39, guess once again I wasn't looking in the right place. Whats contained in this story from Snopes is pretty much what my local news stations were saying. Thanks.

Yeah Larry, we had our landline phone put on the list also. Sometimes I wish I hadn't as there aren't as many chances now to relieve tension/stress by being rude or hanging up on unwanted callers :evil: . If they start getting into my pocket by calling on the cell phone, I won't be that nice :twisted: :lol: .
