Letter to Congress Re: Let Me Control My Cell Phone Number

Consumers Union urges you to support H.R. 3558, the Wireless 411 Privacy Act, which will ensure that more than 150 million cell phone customers have control over how and when – or if – their cell phone numbers are included in a 411 directory. The legislation will also prohibit cell phone companies from charging new fees to consumers who wish to remain unlisted.
