Cell Phone Cell numbers going public just a hoax

Hoax message: "Cell phone numbers go public this month, please see below.

All cell phone numbers are being released to telemarketing companies and you will start to receive sales calls that you will be charged for. To prevent this, call (888) 382-1222 number from your cell phone. This is the National Do Not Call list. It blocks your number for five years. Help others by passing this on."

Snopes snipes: Urban Legends Reference Pages authors and owners Barbara and David P. Mikkelson have been debunking this since 2004.
