Do Not Call Registry

Cell Phone Numbers Go Public this month

REMEMBER: Cell Phone Numbers Go Public this month.

REMINDER..... 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

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.. It blocks your number for five (5) years. You must call from the cell phone number you want to have blocked. You cannot call from a different phone number.

HELP OTHERS BY PASSING THIS ON .. It takes about 20 seconds
.

You can verify by calling back and follow the prompts or check online. I blocked my land line as well. Again.

Thank you for snoping!

At any rate, maybe a few people will register their phones and the link does provide a method to file a complaint.

What MCL said, but this is a great service. Two more corrections: once you are on, you are on until you disconnect your number, not just five years (box at the top of the link you give.) And you can register directly from that website, you don't need to call.

Which I did, Thanks for the link!

As I wrote MCL - this came from my cousin, a retired Army Colonel...

Yes, I could have pulled or re-written the post, but if someone didn't have this information - now he/she can block the phone(s).
Besides, this is Rogers Park where one is tarred and feathered or stoned in the virtual village square for removing or changing a post!

Have a great Thanksgiving all.
