What You Should Know About the National Do Not Call Registry
The National Do Not Call Registry gives you a choice about whether to receive telemarketing calls at home. Most telemarketers should not call your number once it has been on the registry for 31 days. If they do, you can file a complaint at this Website. You can register your home or mobile phone for free.

You'd be surprised how many people including me that live in the country,rural,boonies,the stix,etc..still have landlines..Heh,I'm using my landline to type this i.e dial up.I can't get wireless or fios where I live.
There are so many ways to mess with telemarketers. I'll share one I took care of.
The Boston Globe called me for months trying to get me to subscribe and I politely told them many times no thank you and take me off the call list. That never happened until...
One day after getting yet another annoying call when I hung up I called them. At the time I was making jewelry so I pitched it to them. Kept asking them if they would like to buy some of my jewelry. The person on the other end of the phone was totally confused. She asked me if I wanted to place an add for my jewelry. I told her no that I was selling it but wanted to know if the Boston Globe would like to buy some of it. This went back and forth for a few a minutes till she finally realized I wanted them to buy it.
Finally she asks me why are you calliing us to buy your jewelry? "Well because you are always calling me to buy your newspaper I thought maybe I'd reciprocate with my own business offer. No? you don't want to buy any? Ok, fine then stop calling me and I won't call you again either, deal? LOL It worked because they never ever called me again.
