Attn: Cell phone users read this.

Cell phone numbers going public tomorrow



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.



HELP OTHERS BY PASSING THIS ON TO ALL YOUR FRIENDS.

It take about 20 seconds.

Not to sound like an ass, but this is BS. Just a stupid chain letter/hoax.

The hype is all chain letter, but the idea is solid. It`s just an added layer of protection that doesn`t cost anything to do.

There is a National Do Not Call list. That part is true. I have all my numbers listed with them.

Re: Attn: Cell phone users read this.

and what if this number is to GET your number and put you on a list.

I never trust chain letters.

Give us a reliable source to be believed.

I dunno, I think that having a way to contact help in case I get into an accident or have some other emergency outweighs the "possibility" of being called by telemarketers... But that's sort of a moot point because cell numbers aren't being released to telemarketers.

The number is legit. Here is the FTC FAQ if you wanna see.

It is an extra layer of safety, but the letter is still garbage... cell numbers aren't going to the public record. The only way for telemarketers to get your number is by giving your number out haphazardly.
