Cellphones

+ - Congress may permit robot calls to cell phones.-> 2

Submitted by TCPALaw
TCPALaw (609927) writes "While many hoaxes have circulated in the past about cell phone numbers being opened up to telemarketers, it now may actually happen. A bill, HR 3035, has been introduced in Congress, that would create numerous exceptions to the Telephone Consumer Protection Act, which banned autodialed and prerecorded robot calls to cell phone numbers. If passed, HR 3035 would permit a wide
range of autodialed and prerecorded calls to cell phones that are currently prohibited, and would preempt practically all state laws providing similar protections. This is being applauded by debt collectors and banks... as if the bailouts weren't enough, now they get to make you pay for their calls to you."
