    REMEMBER: Cell Phone Numbers Go Public today
    REMINDER... all cell phone numbers are being
    released to telemarketing companies tomorrow
    and you will start to receive sale 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.

            I already get telemarker calls on my cell phone. Oh no, does this mean I'll get more!!!

            I hate how they still call my home phone even though I'm on the no call list. I'll sign up again.

              I'm not sure if this real this time... but there are a bunch of "urban legends" like this out there... Never the less, always good to be on the Do Not Call list.

                    Hey Everyone!

                    I'm happy to tell you that this is actually a scam that has been going around for a while now. Your cell phone number will not be released! Check this out; snopes.com: Cell Phone Numbers Given to Telemarketers

                    Also, go to Snopes when you get forwards about missing kids, cell phone popcorn, and other scary stories. Snopes investigates whether these claims are fact or fiction.

                      so if it's a scam... then what happens when you register your number with the phone registry?
