If you have any phone numbers which you want to register with the National (United States) Do-Not-Call database, to keep telemarketing cold calls at bay, see the following. (Sorry if you’ve already seen this via e-mail.)
In a few weeks, cell phone numbers are being released to telemarketing
companies and you will start to receive sales calls on cell phones. Either
call this number from your cell phone 888-382-1222 or go to the website
below to register your cell phone. It is the national Do Not Call list.
It blocks your number for 5 years. Please pass on to others who may not be
aware of cell phone status.
Here is online form and website
Fiona and I signed our home number up last year and the difference was noticeable. I wouldn’t say it blocked 100% of unwanted calls, but the number of calls really dropped; enough so that we’ll pick-up day-time phone calls now.
