A friendly reminder, folks... Mon, 12/6/04 6:41 PM (permalink)
A directory of cell phone numbers will soon be published to which all
consumers will have access. This will open the doors for solicitors to
call you on your cell phones, using up precious minutes that we pay lots
of money for. The Federal Trade Commission has set up a "do not call"
list. It is called a cell phone registry. To be included on the "do not
call" list, you must call from the number you wish to register. The number
is 1-888-382-1222. It is free to register.

      Yep. Printed OR not, I belong to the "I'd rather be safe than sorry" generation...

      "Soon, however, some of the privacy that cell phones provide may be eroded. Six national wireless companies (AllTel, AT&T Wireless, Cingular, Nextel, Sprint PCS, and T-Mobile) have banded together and hired Qsent, Inc. to produce a Wireless 411 service. Their goal is to pool their listings to create a comprehensive directory of cell phone customer names and phone numbers that would be made available to directory assistance providers. (In most places, telephone users can call directory assistance at 411 [for local numbers] or by dialing an area code plus 555-1212 [for out-of-area numbers] and, by providing enough information to identify an individual phone customer [usually a full name and city of residence], obtain that customer's phone number.
