An Urban Myth That Will Not Die
It is the e-mail that will never die. About every two months, I get a panicked e-mail from a friend telling me that cell phone numbers are about to be released to telemarketers. Soon my cell will start ringing off the hook with unwanted solicitations on my mobile phone--and my precious limited cell phone minutes will be eaten up!
The letters started reappearing in my e-mail box again recently--even though telemarketing to cell phones is prohibited by law. So let me reiterate, this is an urban myth. If you're concerned, you can always register your cell-phone number on the government's do-not-call list (go online to register or call 888-382-1222.) But you don't need to.
