I got this message recently about cell Phone Numbers Go Public. All cell phone numbers are being released to telemarketing companies and you will start to receive sales calls. YOU WILL BE CHARGED FOR THESE CALLS. If you want to prevent this, call the following number from your cell phone: 888-382-1222. It is the National DO NOT CALL list. It will only take a minute of your time. Continue

    • Same here Vikki and Terri, the government is a buch of liars, why do they even come up with these things if they are not going to implement them honestly? I just don’t answer the calls lol.

    • Hi all,

      Yes, I KNOW how you all feel.  worried  

      It’s takes a month to take effect after the call.  

      Yes, Neicy, I agree - I don’t answer calls at home. My friends know to leave message if they want me to pick up the phone.

      But with cell phone - the process to retrieve a message is more complicated. And it’s harder to tell who is calling you sometimes. I tend to want to answer it. So far, I have not got any calls yet, I registered last month. Don’t know whether I’ll be spared.  

      Well, what else can we do???

      Perhaps we could all get together and protest against this ANNOYING ACT and also to broadcast widely to all telemarketers to let them know that we WILL NOT give them any sort of business if they use this sort of tactic on us. PERIOD!

      Well, lastly if we can’t do much now, at least we can all have a GOOD LAUGH - Ha ha!
