PAT -- please remove my email address to keep SPAM down...

This is an urban legend -- you can confirm that by checking for more information. Your cell number is not going to
be "released" to the telescum.

I do recommend (have done so myself) that you include your cell number
in any do-not-call list entries maintained by the FTC.

[TELECOM Digest Editor's Note: Well, I did this way back when the
'Do Not Call' list was first getting started. In addition to my
personal line, my distinctive ring-ring line, and my VOIP number,
I also added my cellular phone number; my VOIP and cell numbers were
never questioned. PAT]
