    Yea, and as soon as I get a telemarketing call on my cellphone, I will too.

    Considering this *warning* email first originated in 2006????
    Yea, I still haven't called.

    Sure, it doesn't hurt.... but let's not be paranoid.

    \\EDIT\\

    Sorry, hope that didn't come across as being rude.
    I am an IT Manager and get bombarded with internet rumours daily. I hate them. Internet rumours are a pet peeve. People are so quick to believe a rumour that a friend forwards them. Bill Gates will not pay you to forward email, and your cell phone cannot be released to telemarketers.
    I have been asked about this particular one over 50 times, no BS.
    It is simply not true.
    As I said this email started in 2006, if not earlier. One paranoid person sent this to 10 other people and it mushroomed across the internet like lightening.

    It is ILLEGAL for a telemarketing company to use a dialer on cell phones. They can get sued for it. Trust me... they aren't risking that.

    No offense taken and I sensed no rudeness within your post and hopefully no one else does.

    About once every 2 months or so I get a call from spanish telemarketers, but I did put my number on the national "do not call" list. I don't think anyone is paranoid, but if a simple 30 second solution saves people the headache of telemarketing calls, I say just take the 30 seconds and sign up. easy 30 second registration is better than picking up anonymous phone calls during busy times to only answer to a robot.
