For those of you who own cell phones, don't forget to add them to the Federal Do Not Call List www.donotcall.gov . The numbers can be legally published now, which means telemarketers will be able to get them.

We started getting spam text messages on our work-issued cell-phones yesterday, so that reminded me to register my personal cell phone.

Ever sice I got my cell phone, I've been getting fax calls from an unidentified number. It really drives me nuts. The only thing that pisses me off more is the pre-recorded messages.

Hmmm, I think us Canadians luck out this time round....is it a US based co. that is tracking numbers? I remember this coming into effect a while back and I attempted it....no dice. Is it still the same?

Basically, it came down to a decision that cell phone numbers can be legally listed, like a phone book. That means that this list can be obtained by telemarketers... placing your number on the do not call list, makes it illegal for telemarketers to call you, if they do infact, obtain a list with your number on it.
