Get On The Do Not Call List

REMEMBER: Cell Phone Numbers Go Public this month.
REMINDER..... 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. You must call from the cell phone number you want to have blocked. You cannot call from a different phone number.

It takes about 20 seconds.

This was too long to be included in our "Things We Learned This Week" post so I decided to make one just for this alone. I think it's really worth it. Now I have to get Gerard to do it for his phone!

I did this once before but I bet the 5 year mark is nearing so I just did it again online for both of our phones. Thanks for the reminder!

Thanks, Karen! I called them and got my cell phone on the do not call list. Now I need to do the same for my house line!

P.S. I understand about "lurking" (re: your comment on my blog). Sometimes that's all I have time to do, too! Also, any new posts are far and few between so even if you don't come often, you haven't missed out.
