    Or, you can go to

    this web site and register up to 3 land line or cell phones at a

    time.

    It really irritates me that

    they are giving out our cell numbers then charging us for the calls to pester us. That's wrong!

    It used to be against the law for telemarketers to call cell phones. I anticipated that the

    lobbiests would get the law changed, so when the National Do Not Call list originally came out, I registered my cell

    as well as my land line. I just renewed the registration as it was expiring.

    It's still illegal.
