Do Not Call Registry: Help for Too Many Calls

Are you receiving phone calls from sales marketers that you don’t want? You can take action to decrease the number of calls!

You can place you cell phone number on the National Do Not Call Registry to notify marketers that you don’t want to get unsolicited telemarketing calls.

What do I need to know to use the Do Not Call Registry?

You can register your home or mobile phone for free.

To register by telephone, call 1-888-382-1222 (TTY: 1-866-290-4236). You must call from the phone number that you want to register.

To register online (donotcall.gov), you will have to respond to a confirmation email.

After you register, other types of organizations may still call you, such as:

* charities,

* political groups,

* debt collectors.

* and surveys.

What else might be confusing about the Do Not Call Registry?

There is only one Do Not Call Registry. There is no separate registry for cell phones.

There is no deadline for registering a cell phone number on the Do Not Call Registry.

f you have registered a mobile or other telephone number already, you don’t need to re-register. Once registered, a telephone number stays on the Do Not Call Registry until the registration is canceled or service for the number is discontinued.

If you received an unwanted call after your number was on the National Registry for 31 days, report it to the FTC, www.donotcall.gov.
