What is the Do Not Call Registry
The National Do Not Call Registry is managed by the Federal Trade Commission. Its purpose is to reduce unwanted calls to your personal phone numbers from telemarketers. You may register your home phone and cell phone numbers.
Business-to-business calls and faxes are not covered by this registry.
