Hey, Don’t Call Me!

Have you registered with the National Do Not Call Registry, https://www.donotcall.gov/register/reg.aspx,  and Missouri No Call, http://ago.mo.gov/nocalllaw/? These agencies have done a great job of reducing the number of telemarketing calls that used to regularly interrupt most Americans at dinner and other inappropriate times. If you haven’t registered,  spend a couple of minutes at the links above. The services are free, and it will be well worth your time. You can also register your personal cell phone number on the National Do Not Call Registry.

One thing to remember is that these services don’t eliminate ALL telemarketing calls. Charities and political organizations may still call you.  When you donate, tell charities and nonprofits not to contact you or sell your information. These groups are exempted from both the federal and the Missouri do-not-call registries, but they  must maintain an internal do-not-call list.

Companies with whom you have established a business relationship may also still legally call you. Federal law states that even if you put your number on the National Do Not Call Registry, that company may call you for up to 18 months after your last purchase or delivery from it, or your last payment to it, unless you ask the company not to call again. In that case, the company must honor your request not to call. It’s a good idea to make a note of the date you requested no further calls be made to you.

If you still receive calls you wish to screen, Kingdom offers a feature called Personalized Ringing for $3.00 per month.  With this feature, you’ll know who is calling as soon as the phone rings.
