Exclamation cell phone numbers go public next month.....

REMEMBER: Cell Phone Numbers Go Public next month .

All cell phone numbers are being released to telemarketing companies and you will start to receive sale calls.

YOU WILL BE CHARGED FOR THESE CALLS

To prevent this, call the following number from 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.

HELP OTHERS BY PASSING THIS ON TO ALL YOUR FRIENDS.

Todd...you feel for one of the oldest spams around....check this out : snopes.com: Cell Phone Numbers Given to Telemarketers

Though your cell phone numbers won't go public, it still doesn't hurt to add your number to the national Do Not call Registry https://www.donotcall.gov/

With what I've been reading about GPS tracking, and cell companies eager cooperation with Feds, I dont feel secure nor personal privacy protected any more. My contracts up in June and I'm done. Rather pay the monthly difference for a TracPhone bought with cash with no worries. I dont use one enough to consider the savings a "Plan" offers.

Plan on going into the witness protection program?

I know a PI that uses disposable cell phone for most of the work she does. She says that it'* made her job so much easier and allot safer!

LOL. No, but I really dont use my phone like I used to, it doesnt work here where I live, and the fact the Feds mandated GPS and the cell companies kiss their *** without due process just irks me. It would be cheaper to pay as I go. And for a cheaper price, I also have the sureness that a phone I walk in for with cash and no questions isnt being used by government or corporate for who knows what.
