Cell Phones and the No-Call List

March 3, 2008

On the anniversary of Alexander Graham Bell’s birth*, and while the telephone is an amazing invention to be sure, it may be nice to remind all about a handy means in Wisconsin to reduce intrusive phone calls.

By visiting Wisconsin’s No-Call page, residential phone customers can register a phone number to signify that they do not wish to receive calls from telemarketers. Many will also be pleased to note that the State Senate has recently voted unanimously to expand this protection to cell phones!
