You may be devoted to your phone, but not so thrilled about some of the calls you get. If you want fewer telemarketing calls, add your number to the National Do Not Call Registry. It’ll be in good company: the Registry has a total of 223 million active numbers whose owners chose to limit the telemarketing calls they get.
The Federal Trade Commission manages the National Do Not Call Registry. Once you register your phone number, telemarketers covered by the Registry have up to 31 days to stop calling you. You can register your landline and cell phone numbers by calling 1-888-382-1222 from the telephone number(s) you want to register or you can register online. Your registrations don’t expire.
