In a few weeks, cell phone numbers are being released to
telemarketing companies and you will start to receive sale
calls.. You will be charged for these calls.

Call this number from your cell phone 888-382-1222.
It is the national DO NOT CALL list. It only takes a minute of
your time. It blocks your number for 5 years. Please pass this
on to everyone you know who doesn't want to be hassled.

Not that this particular one matters, but this one is a hoax.

http://www.snopes.com/politics/business/cell411.asp

It's been covered in the news around here off and on for the last couple of weeks.

It is still illegal to market to cell phones and is going to remain that way for the foreseeable(sp?) future. The main reason I say this one isn't a big deal is that the only thing that may (have) happened from this message is that the do not call website gets slammed. It doesn't HURT to put your cell phone in there, but it isn't necessary, either.

Be aware, however, that there are SOME messages floating around that link to a registration site that CHARGES to add your number to the list. This one is a scam. It is free to register numbers on the legitimate site.

I wish I could do that, but when I'm out of the office, the office phone is forwarded to my cell phone. Hence, I have to answer calls that I don't recognize. The only ones that I won't answer are ones marked "restricted" or "unavailable". I have a different ringer for those numbers and if my phone rings with one of those, I just hit the ignore button.

Cool it will be a challenge. I can see how many times I can offend/insult them within 10 seconds before I hang up.

Guidon... I'm with you! It is illigal for them to call your cell phone because you get charged for the air time... the reason why they can call you house is cause you don't get charged!
