    when did u hear this???? Ive not heard of this at all. All mobile numbers are on a white pages list anyway, where if u ring directory assisstance u can get it. Mine has been taken off this list and i had to pay for it too just like with a silent landline. But nobody i know gets telemarketing on their mobiles. Its bad enough on the landline!!!!!!!!!!!!

    This spam has been around for ages in various ways.

     

    You register your number with them and then they have your details to call you when they like.

     

    YOU GAVE THEM YOUR DETAILS so there is no reason not to code call you!

     

    They might not be in Oz or even Adelaide so be warned you can get call at any time of the night and day!!

     

    Hope this stops people registering for this......

     

    Just trying to help.
