??? CELL PHONE NUMBERS TO BE RELEASED ???
Today I received the following message in an email from my brother. I don´t know it it´s true or not but thought that it would be good to post it here.

=============
JUST A REMINDER 30 days from today, cell phone numbers are being released
to telemarketing companies and you will start to receive sale calls. YOU WILL BE CHARGED FOR THESE CALLS.

These Telemarketers will eat up your free minutes and end up costing you
money in the long run. 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.

PASS THIS ON TO ALL YOUR FRIENDS

==============

Well GLP FRIENDS, what do you think? If this is true it is definitely a bunch of horse pucky!

I was concerened that the phone number listed might be bogus,,, but it is NOT. I checked the fed DO NOT CALL directory website and, along with a lot of other stuff, they said...

You can register online at WWW.DONOTCALL.GOV or call toll-free, 1-888-382-1222 (TTY 1-866-290-4236), from the number you wish to register. Registration is free.


Has anybody heard anything about this release of cell phone numbers?

Answer: Yes. The registry accepts numbers from landlines and "cellphones". Get on the list or get charged.
