TODAY'S BLOG WILL SAVE YOU MONEY ON YOUR CELL PHONE . . .
and cut down on those annoying @!#*x% sales calls we hate so much.
This month, all cell numbers are being released as public record to telemarketing companies. (Lobbyists worked hard on this one.) This means you are likely to receive many more unsolicited sales calls . . . FOR WHICH YOU WILL BE CHARGED on your cell phone plan. Nonetheless, we can have our revenge . . .
The Federal Trade Commission has set up a cell phone "do not call" number which will block your cell number from future sales calls. But you must call this FTC toll free number FROM THE CELL PHONE YOU WANT BLOCKED. It takes 15 seconds, so here's all you do.
Call (888) 382-1222 from your cell phone and enter your number on the Do Not Call Register.
Voila! End of problem. Do it today.
