In late May 2015, Telemarketers may gain access and begin calling all mobile phone numbers including your iPhone. You need to block telemarketers from calling your iPhone immediately. It’s a completely free service that is handled by the United States Trade Commission.
It is called the Do Not Call Registry and blocks telemarketers from calling a phone. You then have to renew the Do-Not-Call block before then. Remember, it takes 31 days for your iPhone to be added so add it as soon as you can.
2 Ways to Add Your iPhone to Do Not Call Registry:
- By Website: Go to the Do Not Call Registry for iPhone on the Trade Commission’s website to register up to 3 phones.
- You have to give them your email so that they can confirm your request to be put on the Do Not Call Registry
- Important: Make sure to click the confirmation button in the email you get.
- By Phone: Click to Call Here from your iPhone you want to add to the Do Not Call Registry list
- Hit “1” for English (2 for Espanol I believe)
- Hit “1” Again
- Enter your full 10 digit number with area code included
How to File a Complaint
If a company will not leave you alone with sales calls then you can file a complaint here. Remember that charities, surveys and politicians can still call you. That last one is just plain terrible but that’s the law.
