    Starting Jan 1, 2005, all cell phone numbers will be made public to telemarketing firms. So this means as of Jan 1, your cell phone may start ringing off the hook with telemarketers, but unlike your home phone, most of you pay for your incoming calls. These telemarketes will eat up your free minutes and end up
    costing you money in the long run. According to the National Do Not Call List, you have until Dec. 15, 2004 to get on the national "Do not call list" for cell phones. They said that you need to call 1-888-382-1222 from the cell phone* that you wish to have put on the "do not call list" to be put on the list. They also said you can do it online at Registering only takes a minutes, is in effect for 5 years, and will possibley save you
    money (and definitely frustration). Make sure you register now.

    * I don't think you have to make it from your cell phone, you can also register on your computer too.
  2. What database are they going to get these cell phone numbers from?

    Doesn't take much to figure that one out. I'd be willing to bet...oh let's see...the cell phone providers perhaps! :eek:
    Anything to make a buck.

    I think if you report those who call you after you are on the do not call list, it is a $10,000 for every call that they make.
