Do not call list

Thurday night at Hooters I talked to a lot of people, I'm sorry I can't rememeber who wanted this info, but here it is. It's the DO NOT CALL LIST. It does work, but it takes a few months for it to start working.

They have tons of leap holes. 1 I know is if you fill out a sweepstakes form to win something, they can call you. When stores like Best Buy ask for my # when I just buy a CD, I give them an old, i think they can call you if you give it to them. It takes a while to start too, I haven't had 1 call since I'm on it.

The best thing I did was get privacy manager So if I haven't phoned you for my "home" number, you always get privacy manager. I only use the "home" number when I'm a dork and forget to charge the cell Or if you want to really stop unwanted phone calls, get 2 teenagers, with one being in a band and having a girlfriend(s) The phone will always be occupied and the caller will go directly to voice mail

Sometimes goodbye is your second chance.

I hate tm calls so i got telezapper and after a good 2 months of using it i noticed a SIGNIFICANT drop in calls. Before this i would get home to see 30-40 "out of area" calls a day on caller id.

i then went to maybe 10 a day. SBC offered privacy manager deal and i tried for a month and now i am at ZERO! Its really nice. If an unidentified caller calls your phone will come up as "privacy manager" and the person calling has to leave a name and if you want the call you press 1 and it goes right through or deny it and "off with them".

The other nice thing is my parents are out of state so i gave them a 3 digit code and when they call my house they enter that code and it bypasses Privacy manager and my phone rings.

A law just went into affect requiring caller id information to be forwarded with a proper number and name. You should no longer be getting "Unidentified Caller".

I'm on the Do Not Call list and my calls have dropped to a few per week from dozens a day.

I'm not a huge fan of passing more laws, but calling me on MY resources that I paid for, without having my permission, at any time during the day, in order to try to sell me something I don't want, then try to claim it's free speech...

KISS MY GRITS!

There are substanital fines if a company calls and you are on the list.

The only calls I get are from my own credit card company as companies are allowed to call current customers.

In the past, I'd have my two boys, ages 8 & 11, take all the telemarketing calls, they would actually fight over the phone to see who could mess with them.

Add your cell phone number to the Do Not Call list, that should stop most of them.
