10/20 Deadline for Cellphone "Do-not-call" list
 
I got this from Dick McCarthy at Richard Gray's Power Company.

I called and registered my number with them. It didn't sound like a scam.

--------
REMINDER...on October 20th, 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 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. It takes about 20 seconds.

I put in my cell a long time ago when I did my home phone.
If you haven't done it yet there is no need to wait, the only calls I get is from companies I already do business with, charities & politicians.

This looks to be false. According to the FTC.

Also, it is list here as Netlore...

So while it doesn't hurt to do this, there is not deadline, and telemarketers are already prohibitied from calling cellphone numbers with automatic dialers.
