JUST A REMINDER....5 days from today, 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.


I'd like to meet the person in our government who allowed this to happen so I can punch him in the face.

Receiving unsolicited calls is bad enough, but now I have to pay too?
Don't answer it.
note: you must call the number from your cell, or use the website.
i did it from the website a couple months ago... cut down aon alotta chit i was getting..

Who here has ever gotten a tele-text message? i got a couple of them so far too
I got a few text messages before for perscription medicines from Canada.
Sorry fellas, I found out I got suckered on that one. Urban legend, and a pretty good one too.
But people should sign up for do not call on their landlines anyway. We did, and we renew it every so often too.

Maybe not for nothing. We still get solicitors calling our cells now and then. Maybe this will help. It can't hurt.
Youre right, it cant hurt.
unless that's the company collecting cell numbers to sell to the telemarketing companies
Oh no, that IS the do not call list. Since I registered on it, my home phone gets zero solicitors - unless they are so called not for profit who are exempt from the list. To those callers, I tell them verbally not to call again and that I have already chosen my charities.
Every once in a while I get a call from a Survey team and they try to get me to make a survey. When I tell them I do not want a call they say, "I'm sorry but we are exempt from that law because we are a non profit organization."

So when I try and get my number off their personal list them they say, Oh no, you have to answer this we can't remove your name from the list.

I called BS and asked for a manager. None available, EVERY time. And they would be calling at 6:00am in the morning. Finally I said that this was harrassment since I didn't invite them to call me, nor provide my number. They gave another bullshit reason.

Finally fed up, I recorded the next call (its a live rep) and told them I was recording it to play back to my phone company. I must have kept that guy on the phone for an hour until he was so pissed he started slipping and deviating from the scripts. Got him pissed enough to swear at me on the phone.

Tape in hand I called the company and played back the portion where It old him it was being recorded, and then the portion where he was pissed off. Now they are blocked from calling me at any hour of the day.

Pissed me off, calling at 6:00am in the morning to take a damned survey. One that the company "required" me to take. BS I didn't sign any contract, or purchase any services from them. I wish I could have sued their asses for loss of sleep.
