The Truth About Cell Phones

E-mails have been circulating and even one local paper reported that cell phone numbers will be released to telemarketing companies in less than two weeks. But this is not true; Tuesday we spoke with David Robbins with the Federal Trade Commission who put the myth to rest.

"If a consumer is worried because of this e-mail that calls are going to be accruing to their cell phones they should not worry that e-mail is totally wrong.  In my view they should treat that e-mail as any other junk e-mail and delete it," says Robbins.

If you would like more information about the National Do-Not-Call Registry.  On KLTV's home page click on the Know More On 7 Link, you will see the link called The Truth About Cell Phones.
