The Truth About Cell Phones and the National Do-Not-Call List

You may have received an email telling you cell phones will start to get unwanted telemarketing calls unless you add your wireless number to a special Do-Not-Call Registry.

However, placing telemarketing calls to wireless phones is, and always has been, illegal.

It is unlawful for anyone to place a call using an automatic telephone dialing system or a prerecorded voice message to a telephone number assigned to a paging service, mobile telephone service or any service for which the called party is charged for the call. This applies whether or not your cell phone number is listed on a Do-Not-Call list.

If you receive unwanted calls that you believe violate the do-not-call rules, you can file a complaint with the Federal Communications Commission.
