In an effort to reduce the number of unwanted telemarketing calls, the federal government and some states provide telephone subscribers the opportunity to register their telephone numbers for inclusion on a Do Not Call (DNC) registry. You must renew your DNC registry every five years. If you are currently on a federal or a state DNC registry, you may need to reregister if:
- You change your telephone number.
- Your telephone number has been transferred to/from another provider.
- Your phone service is disconnected for any reason and then reconnected.
- You move to another address.
For additional information about the federal registry, or to register, re-register or revoke registration of your number for free, visit the Federal Trade Commission’s website at donotcall.gov or call 1-888-382-1222.
