National Do Not Call Registry

Lately, I’ve been getting lots of unwanted calls on my house and cell phone. So, I headed over to the National DO NOT CALL Registry and signed up my phone numbers. You will need to enter a valid email address, they will send you an email for EACH phone number you register and you MUST click each link to activate the registry for each number. So, my fingers are cross this works. It’s so annoying to receive unwanted calls!

Editor’s note: It’s also worth having an unlisted/private number as well. It is a nominal fee each month for the additional privacy and the phone company does not include you in any phone listings on or off line. Since moving to our new home a year ago we have enjoyed a relatively quiet phone line since having an “private” number.

We also exercise caution when giving out our number, especially our cell phones. It’s not easy because you still have companies who will sell, rent or give out your number.

  1. I got a Google Voice number and use that. I changed my cell so only a few people would have it.

  2. Jennifer says:

    I went over and added my number! thanks

  3. I always sign up for these do not call registries when I get a new phone number – I hate telemarketers!

  4. Billie says:

    I’ve got to get signed up, I get pretty annoyed with telemarketers.

  5. Lolo says:

    It has been awhile since I added mine. I should make sure I am still on it.

    I need to get on this.

  7. Kathleen says:

    Thanks! I have been getting a ridiculous amount of calls lately.

  8. Signed my number up!

  9. Courtney says:

    I had to do this too!

  10. I didn’t realize you could do this with your cell phone! Thanks for the tip!

  11. Leilani says:

    I signed up a while ago, and thankfully do not have to deal with any unsolicited phone calls.

  12. Colleen says:

    It doesn’t stop them all but it does seem to cut down on the on wanted calls.

  13. Stefani says:

    I hate when I get unwanted calls to my cell phone since I am on a plan!

  14. I signed-up years ago, but I’m still getting unwanted calls on my cell phone, maybe I’ll try again, thanks!

  15. Too bad charities and political phone calls are exempt from this list… :(

  16. HilLesha says:

    Sadly, this doesn’t work. I still get unsolicited calls. :(

  17. Jenn says:

    We completely got rid of our land line for this reason!

  18. We got rid of our landline as well. All that called us was telemarketers and now I can save that money each month LOL!

  19. Thanks! I haven’t done this in a while.

  20. Donna says:

    We are on the do not call registry, but have been getting a lot of telemarketing calls lately. Ugh!

  21. I’ve been doing this but since I moved to NC, it doesn’t seem to be helping. I feel like I’m getting calls that simply move through the numbers and I’m not sure the registry can stop that. :(

  22. I just added myself to that list, too! I cannot stand unwanted phone calls!
