I tought you (like me) might need this info. It's important.
Hector Herrera

REMINDER 16 days from today,
all cell phone numbers are being released to telemarketing companies and you will start to receive sale calls.
YOU WILL BE CHARGED FOR THESE 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.
HELP OTHERS,
PASS THIS ON TO ALL YOUR FRIENDS OR GO TO: http://www.donotcall.gov/

Don't worry, this is actually one of those urban legends.
It is, and will continue to be, illegal to use those automated machines to call cell phones.

Thanks for that guys, I've heard both sides of the coin, but never been interested enough to do any research. I don't mind chatting the ears off of those telemarketers, they've called my land-line before, but I've only been contacted by the guys in politics who want my vote on the cell.
