On October 17th all US cell phone numbers were released to telemarketing companies. You can prevent them from harassing you and wasting your minutes and money by calling 1-888-382-1222
or by going to this site.
Thanks for the reminder edy!

Where did you hear about this? I think the ability to get off the list has been around since 2003, but maybe this is finally the REAL deadline?

Heh, it can't hurt to re-register in any case, right? *smile*

Well, I did register a never-used-before email address on the DMA's do-not-spam list. Guess what happened to that email address? ;)
Well if they do that you can sue your local provider for breaking the privacy laws. And if they don't have privacy laws basically your screwed.

Well sut i called and registered 2 weeks ago and haven't had any calls so i figured if i was going to get spammed with calls it would have happened by now. And i heard about it through work, the mayors secretary stuck a memo in all our mail boxes since we have phones supplied by the town.
