Cool WARNING!! Telemarketers & Cell phones

Not sure if this is true or not, Maybe someone on here does???






In a few weeks, cell phone numbers are being released to telemarketing

companies and you will start to receive sales calls. You will be
charged for these calls!
Call this number from your cell phone 1-888-382-1222. Be ready to
punch in your cell phone number on request. It is the national DO NOT
CALL
list. It only takes a minute of your time. It blocks your number for
5 years. Please pass this message on.

Web. site is www.donotcall.gov
The toll- free number is 1-888-382-1222


IF not true please disregard


I'm sick of following my dreams. I'm just going to ask them where they're goin', and hook up with them later!!

If I get telemarketer calls on my cell, I cancel my service. Plain and simple. We tried the do not call list with our home phone and it didn't do shit. Sure hope that is false... I can see it hurting the cell companies BIG in lost customers if they let it happen.

I do the "do not call list" every 3-4 months because as soon you put your number on anything, they can call you. I never got a call yet. If you fill out a form to win something, they can call you. That's how they get you back on the "DO CALL LIST". So fill out the "DO NOT CALL" every few months and I bet it will help.
