I just got this note from a friend…it sucks. The government is ours not the phone companies but some how they are doing this.
REMINDER….16 days from today, all cell phone numbers are being released to telemarketing companies and you will start to receive sale 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 TO ALL YOUR FRIENDS 0r go to: www.donotcall.gov
Register your home phone and your cell phones…follow instructions.
What if you don’t have home phone? Anyways.
UPDAT: Paul Madson wrote to tell me he thinks it is a hoax pointing me to about.com’s page on the subject. Oh well. it could be true and I have heard rumors that the cel phone companies want to make a directory.
