    Telemarketers can call your phone....

    One of my teachers said that he saw this on the news that in about a month or so, that telemarketers will be able to call your cellular device because of a new law passed by congress.....
    Honestly this makes me mad. My cell phone was the only thing that didn't ring every night around supper.......now that's gone......but there is good news, there is a number that you can call, but it only blacks your number for 5 years, its at my house, and i will repost with the number when i get home
    Let's make some noise!

    We should expect better from Educators:

    Yep, and if it was, in fact, on the news, we should expect better from the news.

    Help stamp out, eliminate, and do away with redundancy.

    Fact or fiction? That was the question last week on the evening news.

    It isn't true.

    put your number on the list!

    The only thing that stops TMs from calling your cell is the fact that there isn't a listing of cell numbers (like the Phone book).
    Otherwise, as far as I know, you can (and will) be called.
