Wireless phones added to No Call List

September 3, 2003

ATLANTA-- September 3, 2003- The Georgia Public Service Commission  today announced a number of proposed changes to the state's No Call Program beginning November 1, 2003.

Under the proposed changes, Georgia residential and wireless telephone customers will be placed on the Georgia No Call list free of charge simply by registering their phone numbers with the new Do Not Call lists maintained by the Federal Communications Commission and the Federal Trade Commission. There is no fee to register on the federal list.

Consumers can register with the federal list on-line at www.donotcall.gov
or by calling toll-free 1-888-382-1222. (You must call from the telephone number that will be registered with the list.)

After November 1, 2003 Georgia consumers will register directly with the federal no call list. They will then be automatically registered on the Georgia List. Since the consumer will be on both the state and federal lists, both the state and federal Do Not Call laws will protect them.
