Beginning today, all cell phone numbers will be released to telemarketers. If you’re like me and you don’t answer your phone unless you recognize the number, it won’t affect you.
But to those of you who jump to answer every call – get ready to be besieged by telemarketers hawking everything under the sun!
The Federal Trade Commission has set up a National Do Not Call Registry where you can add your cell number to a Do Not Call list. You must call from the cell phone that you are registering. The number is 1-888 382-1222 or visit Donotcall.gov.
