The Federal No Call Number to stop Robo-Calls

If you’ve been receiving these “robo-calls” and want to stop them, you can call
the Federal No-Call number:  1-888-382-1222

It takes up to 30 days for it to take effect once you have registered.  You cannot stop getting calls from charities or fundraisers for politicians, but 30 days after registering your phone number you should not get robo-calls.  If you do get calls there is another number you can call to issue a complaint about entities that call you.

It appears that at some point in time cell numbers are going to be made available.  We are not sure what to do about that just yet.
