All Good Things Must Come to an End…

Sooner or later, Crofton MD residents are going to answer their cell phones in the middle of the grocery store, on vacation, or while they’re out looking at homes – only to find out the caller is a campaigning politician, surveyor or telemarketer.  That’s because our cell phone numbers are available now in online public directories.

In a quick search, I found several including People Lookup, Find Cell Phone Numbers, Reverse Cell Phone Lookup, and others.  If you and I can go online to find these resources, you know the telemarketers are (or will be) doing so.  And yes, they will eat up our precious cell minutes even if the call goes to voice mail.  

Our best hope for minimizing those calls to our cell phones is to register our numbers with the National Do Not Call List, either online or by telephone (888-382-1222)

We can register up to three numbers, including our cell phones.  But the system isn’t perfect – Even though our registration will be effective for five years, we can still expect to receive political campaign calls, solicitations from charities, and businesses masquerading sales calls as “surveys”.  But telemarketing sales calls will be a no-no, and that will help.

Whatever happened to the concept of carrying a phone for your own convenience, not for the convenience of others?  Apparently that’s one of those “good things” we’ll be talking about in the past tense.
