Pat, please remove my e-mail address from this posting. Thanks.

I just received a telemarketing call -- on my _cell_ phone. It was a
recorded message offering me a chance for a free cruise. Just what I

I called the number they gave me -- (800) 664-0366 -- and talked to
Dean (no last name) of Intellegent Alternatives. He pleasantly
informed me in his accented English that 1) _He_ didn't call me,
someone else in his company did; and 2) It is not illegal to
telemarket to cell phones.

Also, if I had any comments about their marketing practices, his
supervisor was not available, but I could call (858) 452-3585 and
speak to someone there.

If any of your gentle readers would like a chance for a cruise, they
can call (800) 664-0366 and talk to the dear folks there. I hear they
love to talk.


[TELECOM Digest Editor's Note: A cruise sounds like a nice deal. The
last time I went on a nice boat trip was years ago when we went on the
Chesapeake and Ohio ferry across Lake Michigan from Milwaukee to a
place in Michigan where we stayed all night at a motel then came back
on the boat the next day. Do you think they could arrange that for me
again at 800-664-0366 or would it be better if I talked to the
supervisor at 858-452-3585? Any of you guys who check it out please
report back here on it. PAT]
