Don’t Answer Calls from 480-359-4334


Don’t you love it when your cell phone rings and just a phone number shows up.  Not a name of a friend, co-worker or relative…just a mysterious phone number from some mysterious state or a town you’ve never heard of?  You wonder to yourself; “is it a long lost friend”, “is it someone from the corporate office”, “did a distant relative pass away”, “has my kid been arressted”, “is it a TELEMARKETING call”?

This morning I received a call from (480) 359-4334 from “AZ, USA”.  I know a few people in Arizona, the first who come to mind is one of my corporate bosses and a former co worker–but that’s about it.

I chose not to answer the phone and figured if it was important voicemail would be left.  After a few minutes-no voicemail.  A Google search showed this was a “spammer” offering a free cruise.  Probably some type of scam.  Happy I did not pick up the call.

For many years we did not receive these annoying telemarketing calls on our cell phones, but we are now.  I remembered that we once registered our home landline at and that stopped all the annoying (usually at dinnertime) calls, but I must have never registered my  cell phone.

It’s a simple process:

  • Open your Internet browser and go to the National Do Not Call Registry website. This website, set up by the US government, is a directory of citizens who do not wish to be contacted by telemarketers. This can prevent calls to your cell phone through the threat of potential legal action.

  • On the left-hand side of the screen, click the button that reads “Register a Phone Number.”

  • Fill out the form on the following page. You will need an email address and up to three numbers, land lines or cell phones, that you wish to take off of call lists.

  • Click “Register” when you have entered and verified your information.

  • Go to your email account and open the email from the National Do Not Call Registry. Click on the link to activate your listing on the Do Not Call Registry.
