I called them and looked at the website. They say the number is permanent, no need to redo it later. Now if it would only work for businesses.

If you have given out your cell number on any forms you might it might have been sold in a list to telemarketers. My business and personal number are the same so I have given mine out.

Pffft. The 'Do Not Call List'. What a joke. 99.99% of telemarketers know damned well there isn't a dime available to go after anyone.

Re: PSA - Cell Phone Numbers Go Public


I don't understand telemarketing. I'm 55 years old and I have NEVER, EVER purchased anything as the result of a phone-based sales pitch, I mean, NONE, NADA, ZILCH. Surely, no one with any sense would even consider buying something over the phone.......

Re: PSA - Cell Phone Numbers Go Public


I think with volume calls it only takes a few suckers. My observation is it's a bunch of losers probably unemployable otherwise. I've had them call back repeatedly before caller id was around. Just for spite.

They can call 100 people, and if only ONE moron buys their chit, they make money.
