Austin TX Real Estate - Hill Country Austin Lakeway Homes for Sale: Do Not Call for Cell Phones

Do Not Call for Cell Phones

Heads up, in 8 days, all cell phone numbers will be released to telemarketers!! You will start to receive these annoying calls, and YOU have to pay for them as they rack up minutes on your phone plan!

To be put on the DNC list, call 888-382-1222. You must call from the cell phone in which you wish to register. You'll be on the list for 5 years. I just called in myself and they also warned that it takes a while to be removed from the list, but if would definitely be updated by 31 days. Why 31 and not 30, I have no idea, but maybe because next week is a Holiday!

Rumors about cell phone numbers being released and the DNC have been floating around since the DNC started. The DNC has always accepted cell number submissions.

According to the FTC, release to marketers is just a rumor.

Really?  No way!!  This notice was put out by our MLS... why wouldn't those high-up execs look to see if it was real or not...

Major corporations fall for internet rumors every day, they are by design very compelling and believable.

You'd think people would have something better to do with their time than to make this kind of thing up...'

But it can't hurt to put your cell number on the DNC. Heck I put my fax line on it (when I had a fax line)
