How To Register Your Number For The ‘Do Not Call’ List

We’ve all experienced getting those annoying telemarketer calls at home (and now even to our cell phones!) during the most inappropriate times; be it early mornings, during dinner or at work. But did you know you can add your number to a ‘Do Not Call’ list to limit those pesky callers?

Through the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA), the FCC, along with the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), established a national Do-Not-Call Registry to help reduce the amount of unwanted calls from telemarketers.

According to, The Do-Not-Call registry does not prevent all unwanted calls. It does not cover the following:

  • calls from organizations with which you have established a business relationship;
  • calls for which you have given prior written permission;
  • calls which are not commercial or do not include unsolicited advertisements;
  • calls by or on behalf of tax-exempt non-profit organizations.

If you want to register your cell or home phone number for free on the Do Not Call List, visit or call 1-888-382-1222.
