Reduce Telemarketing

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 or call 1-888-382-1222.
