I'm on the do not call list. I can't remember the link or I'd put it up here for you so you can register to be on it. I'm sure someone will post it for you though.

Thank you Maverick.

But what a godsend!!!! It doesn't stop calls from campaigns or donation companies that you have contributed to in the past which is fine with us. If a company calls outside of whom you've dealt with in the past just tell them you are on the "Do Not Call List" and not to bother you again. Usually that's sufficient. If they continue then you can sue them.

I disconnected my land line, so no more phone calls!!! Could not see the point in having 2 cel phones and a regular phone.
