If so, you might want to hop on over to the do not call list site.

Starting in January, cell phone numbers are being made public to telemarketers. Yep, you're going to pay for telemarketers to call you for shit you don't need/want.

Today's the deadline. I just found out for myself.

Since I'm obviously hesitant to give personal info over to the BCE government, I'll just rely on good old fashioned Caller ID - and if I don't know the nuimber, I don't answer it. :)

It wouldn't suprise me if they left voice mail if you don't answer.

Correct, telemarketers a banned from calling cell phone numbers due to the costs incurred to the recipient. Just saw a piece on this hoax on the news last night.
