Public Cell List
I was in the elevator with a couple and the girlfriend was warning her boyfriend. She'd found out that cell phone numbers would soon become available to telemarketers and it was of the utmost importance that he sign a petition and going a no-call list to avoid these telemarketing calls. This idea that cell phone numbers will be come widely available and we'll begin fielding marketing calls all day pops up once in a while, though it doesn't seem it's ever as perilous as we imagine. I've never signed a no-call list and I don't get solicited on my phone. I do occasionally get faxes, but I think that's because my friend signed up my cell phone as a media contact for playhouses in Minnesota. But the guy in the elevator had an even better answer, "That's cool. I hardly ever get phone calls anymore."
