New law prohibits telemarketers from calling people on their cell phones


HATTIESBURG, Miss. - There is a new law that will eliminate telemarketers from calling people on their cell phones.

Sam Britton, Southern District Public Service commissioner said, "Before the 'no call list,' just included your personal phones. Now that law has been expanded to include cell phones. Therefore, you can register your cell phone on the 'no call list.' While the 'no call list' sounds like you get no calls, that's not exactly right. There are some exceptions to that where you can receive calls. But it will eliminate a lot of the intrusive telemarketers that you do receive."
