Nice catch, no harm done by registering them anyway.

Have you seen UB's luck on the phishing score? He should probably register his cell phones 4-5 times just to be sure

FWIW, I register ALL of my phone #s and have done so since day one. I've never rec'd a telemarketing call on my cell phone and can't remember the last one I got at home. Between the do not call list and an unlisted number something must be working

My guess is that it's the unlisted number. I've never received a marketing call on a cell, but even though my home number has been on the do not call list since day one, I receive a lot at home.

Oh....I'm sorry Jeff....I thought referring your phone number for that extra 2% off at Ebay would help us both out...my bad....

Probably true although we did use to get some when the number was just unlisted. Sooner or later you are bound to get one of "the lists" and it is downhill from then. I think having both has really helped
