Seems to be. I registered on the website about a week or so ago, but the numbers on the FCC site are the same as the one on the e-mail you got.

The National Do Not Call List is legit......






.....but the panic ridden email is not. That said, adding your cellphone to the DNC registry can't do any harm.


Urban legends


While it's true that the major wireless phone providers (Verizon excepted) have announced their intention to establish a 411 directory of customers' cell phone numbers beginning in 2006, it is not true that they plan to "publish" said directory for any and all to read. Participating companies say the numbers will be made available only with customer consent, and only via telephone to users who dial directory assistance and pay a fee.


The companies swear the numbers will never be accessible to telemarketers. In fact, per FCC regulations, telemarketers are already prohibited from calling cell phone numbers using automated dialers, which are standard in the industry.


Note - Verizon are having nothing to do with this 411 deal.
