No-call list deadline nears
MADISON The deadline to register or re-register phone numbers on the Wisconsin No Call List is Friday, Nov. 30.
The free no call service, offered through the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection (DATCP), covers residential land and cell phone lines. Consumers must register every two years to stay active.
To add your residential landline, cell phone or VoIP number(s) to the list, visit http://nocall.wisconsin.gov or dial 1-866-9NO-CALL (1-866-966-2255). The website and toll-free number are available all day, every day.
Wisconsin residents who add their numbers to the list by that date will receive protection from unsolicited telemarketing phone calls and text messages starting on January 1.
The list is updated four times per calendar year (January 1, April 1, July 1 and October 1). The registration process is continuous, but those who sign up after the upcoming November 30 deadline will not be added to the list until April 1.
Political calls, calls from non-profit organizations and calls made in response to your written or verbal request or permission are not covered by the No Call law. Additional information is at nocall.wisconsin.gov.
