From an e-mail I got from my brother:

Subject: Do Not Call List for Cell Phones


Dear Neighbors,

I was sent this information from a friend of mine and thought that it was very important for all of us. I had not heard of this so I thought I would pass it on to you.

Starting Jan 1, 2005, all cell phone numbers will be made public to telemarketing firms. So this means as of Jan 1, your cell phone may start ringing off the hook with telemarketers, but unlike your home phone, most of you pay for your incoming calls. These telemarketers will eat up your minutes and end up costing you money in the long run. According to the National Do Not Call List, you have until Dec.15th, 2004 to get on the national "Do not call list" for cell phones. They said that you need to call 1-888-382-1222 from the cell phone that you wish to have put on the "do not call list" to be put on the list. They also said you can do it online at www.donotcall.gov http://www.donotcall.gov. Registering only takes a minute, is in effect for 5 years and will possibly save you money (definitely frustration)! Make sure you register now!

Verizon was wanting to start this, but came up against a lot of opposition. They are now going to go with a "411 plan" which only gives out numbers if you sign up and agree to let them give it out. If you start receiving calls from telemarketers on your cell phone without your consent, you are to call your state's communications commission with the info of who called and they will be repremanded.
Just a little info from some quick searching.
