Telemarketing calls are often inconvenient and annoying. Many telemarketers earn their money from successful sales calls, and they can adopt persistent and rude tactics to close deals. But the Federal Trade Commission now offers a solution for those who don't want to receive such calls. Since July 2003, the FTC has provided a "National Do Not Call Registry," where anyone can register a phone number where solicitation calls are not wanted. Placing your phone number on this list will drastically reduce the amount of sales calls your phone will receive.
