(sorry...turns out this is an urban legend..the Government is NOT releasing numbers...but the phone number for un-listing yours is valid)
REMEMBER: Cell Phone Numbers Go Public this month.
.... all cell phone numbers are being released to telemarketing companies and you will start to receive sales calls.
.... YOU WILL BE CHARGED FOR THESE CALLS
To prevent this, call the following number from your land line and 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.
It takes about 20 seconds.
