Cell Phone Numbers Go Public~!

Yep, it really is happening~!

 Cell phone numbers go public this month.
That means that your cell phone numbers is being released to telemarketing companies, which means you will soon begin to receive those frustrating sales calls.
Irritating, yes, but the news gets worse…
…. YOU WILL BE CHARGED FOR THOSE CALLS!

Go ahead and fume for a bit.  I did.  But then take steps to stop this upcoming run on your cell phone minutes.
All you need to do is call, from your cell phone:    888-382-1222.
This is the National Do Not Call list. 

It only takes seconds to complete your call, but it will block your number for 5 years. 

You must call from the cell phone number you want to have blocked.  It won’t work if you call from a different phone number.

While you’re at it, you may want to register your landline as well.  (You will have to make another call–one from that phone.)

Feel free to pass this along to your family and friends.  None of us needs this!

“So little done, so much to do.”

    Thanks for the reminder! I registered our home phone number several years ago via a website, but as I told Christian the other day after a series of annoying phone calls, I think our five years are up. And I don’t think I ever registered my cell phone.
    Have a blessed weekend, precious friend

    Thank you, thank you for the reminder! Sent it on to our girls and we’re taking care of it–nice to have some control over something in our flooded, now stripped, house. Life is just full of stuff, isn’t it?
    Love to you as always

  3. You said it, Jean. Life is indeed “full of stuff”!
