I understand that cell phones numbers are being released to Telemarketers. You can set up your cell phone numbers at donotcall.gov

This came up a year or so back, turns out it was a hoax (I also work for a newspaper), but there is no harm in getting your cell number listed. We already have. As soon as incoming calls are free to everyone (or as more and more people drop their land lines (as we have), it’ll be a hoax no more, but a neccessity.

Yep, most service providers are free within their network, only one is free incoming to everyone regardless of who originates the call… cell phones were quite a racket back in the “emergency use only” days. Costs are getting better – actually more cost effective for my wife and I to have cells than our home phone, provided we don’t text too much, send photos, or do any of the a-la-carte add ons, ringtones, ringbacks etc…

99 cents for a whole song (to own) from iTunes. compare that to $4 or more, for a 10-20 second ring tone. These sorts of things (thanks to the teen market) is the real gold mine.

and you start paying for a call as soon as the phone starts to ring (NOT just when the call is answered)

Time for a new cell phone provider then MsDebbie, if the one you have charges that way.

Mine doesn’t.

I switched to a tracfone pay as you go about 6 months ago. For the amount of time I use a phone. We have two phones. We’ve been saving about $80/month.
