j/k...you can register now...I just did it...you get an e-mail for each number you register and you can do 3 at a time. you will need to provide an e-mail. After you get the e-mail, you'll need to confirm through a link they provide.

No! It's a trap! Now, I'm getting spam!

I just went on the web site you posted . . . it says:

"Your registration will not expire. Telephone numbers placed on the National Do Not Call Registry will remain on it permanently due to the Do-Not-Call Improvement Act of 2007, which became law in February 2008. Read more about it at http://www.ftc.gov/opa/2008/04/dncfyi.shtm."

regardless, it's a good idea to register your phones (mobile and land lines). from my experience, it dramatically reduced the number of unsolicited calls.

paul, too much sugar today?

Yes, it has been going around for several years. And it is a HOAX. You do NOT need to register your cell phone number in the "Do Not Call" registry. Refer to the following article updated Feb 3, 2008 for more info: http://www.snopes.com/politics/business/cell411.asp
