Passing it on - we found out recently that Canadians pay the highest rates in the world for cell phone service. As if these guys are not making enough money, now they're selling our phone numbers to telemarketers, and then have the nerve to charge us for these calls! I'm with Telus and couldn't believe it when I discovered they themselves were sending me text message advertizing their Telus specials and charging me for receiving text messages! I'm flabbergasted the CRTC lets them get away with it, but anyway here's a way to get on the cell phone do not call list.
Subject: Fw: Cell Phone Numbers Go Public this month - Confirmed by Telus

Cell Phone Numbers Go Public this month.
REMINDER .... 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:
1 866-580-3625 or 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.
Or you can do it online at www.lnnte-dncl.gc.ca
HELP OTHERS BY PASSING THIS ON TO ALL YOUR FRIENDS.. It takes about 20 seconds
Thanks Bob A.
