Question by styx_fan05: why do 800 numbers keep calling my phone?
A while back, I was doing something on the internet and something came up to put in your email address and phone number. Well, I did that, not expecting anyone to call me, well, now I am getting a few calls from 800 numbers and one that is unavailable. Why do they keep calling me (sometimes a few times a day), and how do I make them stop? Plus, I am now getting junk email that I do not want anyway. Someone help please. Also, it’s my cell phone that they keep calling.
I put my number on the do not call registry yesterday, and the unavailable number called my phone this morning. I don’t know if it has stopped the others from calling or not.

Most likely telemarketers. They will take a long time to stop calling. I have had this several times happen to me. Go to www.donotcall.gov or call 1-888-382-1222 and have your number put on the do not call list.
