JACKSON, MISS–Registration for cellphones for the Mississippi No Call list will begin Friday, according to the Mississippi Public Service Commission.
The registration process for cellphones is the same as registering a residential landline. One can visit the Central District website to register online or call 1-800-356-6430 for assistance.
After registration, it takes two months for that number to be officially on the list. At that time, one can call and report the unsolicited calls, or file a complaint on the website.
The No-Call List for landlines has been successful, according to officials with the PSC.
“We have received 74,436 complaints since the No Call Registry for landlines became law,” said LaKeshia McDaniel from the Public Service Commissioner’s Office. “Of those complaints, $2,784,000.00 in fines have been collected since October 2014 from unscrupulous telemarketers. We believe No Call for cellphones will be just as successful.”
