woman on a cell phoneDid you hear the rumor? Any day now telemarketers will be assaulting your cell phone! The good news is that it’s a rumor and nothing more.

E-mails have been circulating and urging you to register your cell phone number with the special Do Not Call Registry for wireless phones. I just saw one in my e-mail inbox and I was almost fooled. Luckily I work with a small army of dedicated consumer information experts who set me straight!

There is no special Do Not Call Registry for wireless phones. If you want to, you can register your cell phone number on the Do Not Call Registry, but telemarketers are prohibited from calling you on your cell phone whether it’s registered or not.

If you’re receiving unwanted telemarketing calls at home (on your land line), it’s easy to register on the Do Not Call Registry. If you want to file a complaint about unwanted telemarketing calls, you can file online, or call 1-888-382-1222 (TTY: 1-866-290-4236).
