Since '91, it's been illegal for telemarketers to use autodialers and other robot-like devices to call your cellphone. Last week, a bill was introduced to change that. While in the past email hoaxes have gone around saying that your cellphone could be opened up to telemarketers, HR 3035 seeks to let businesses contact your cellphone "for informational purposes."
If that's the list of supporters, you can be pretty sure it sucks for you.

The only calls I get that are automated are from political candidates and political parties. I get flooded with them every election. My home phone has been unlisted for ten years and some have my name when they call.
Add them to that list, because they will use it. I'd say 9 out of 10 automated calls I've had are from one Party, the Democrats. I had one on an unlisted office line last week for Obama. That line is not even in a phone book and they knew the company name, so the Obama campaign must have access to the names for unlisted lines. To be fair it was likely a local PAC. I'm registered undeclared, so I get them all.
