Cell Phone Do Not Call List

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

 

 Hi All!!  There is a link to do this on-line - it literally takes seconds!!!  I did all our phone lines

----- Original Message -----

 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.
