Charles, I have received the email about cell phones and warning people to put 
their name or cell phone number on the do not call list several times over the 
years. According to  web sites that track urban legends this is false 
information. My rule of thumb is when I receive any email urging me to do 
something or anything and tells me to pass it on to everyone on my contact list 
alarms go off in my head and I turn to www.snopes.com or www.factcheck.con to 
check the subject line out. Even when you get an email from a trusted friend, 
check it out first before sending it out again. This kind of mail is no place 
for a chain letter like email unless the mailing list is set up to discuss 
urban legends.

any legitimate source?

  thanks for thinking of your friends Dorothy, but this is a very old hoax, at 
least 5 years old.  I didn't even read the entire message, but I bet it says 
something like it's been verified on snopes.com  well, it hasn't, and if you go 
look, you'll see it's a hoax.

  so, here's the new rule for posting any sort of warning about something bad 
which may happen to you if you don't do something to prevent, and by the way 
pass this on (always a part of these hoaxes):

  * you are not allowed to post any such warning, especially the kind which say 
to pass it on, unless you yourself have gone to snopes.com and verified that it 
is not a hoax.  DO NOT believe the message when it says this has been done.

  thanks everyone.

  REMEMBER: Cell Phone Numbers Go Public this month.
  REMINDER..... all cell phone numbers are being released to telemarketing 
companies and you will start to receive sales calls.


  To prevent this, call the following number from your cell phone: 888-382-1222.
  It is the National DO NOT CALL list It will only take a minute of your time.. 
It blocks your number for five (5) years. You must call from the cell phone
  number you want to have blocked. You cannot call from a different phone 

  HELP OTHERS BY PASSING THIS ON .. It takes about 20 seconds
