    Right, the net effect is that we have an unlisted # without paying for
    it.



    It also works better than an unlisted # because someone can't call the
    phone company and get the unlisted # in other unscrupulous ways.

    I will argue that point. We have an unpublished number and we don't receive
    any (as in maybe 2 per year ... from MCI) solicitous phone calls. Now we
    are on the Minnesota do not call list and have not recieved any calls at all
    (other than political surveys) in more than 6 months.

    I was generally speaking in terms of credit offers, and telemarketing.
    And specifically speaking about in my case a stalker of my wife.

    I prefer the different name, because we had an unlisted # for 2 years,
    and still had telemarketers, and other people calling. When I asked how
    they got an unlisted # they said the phone company. To me that is like
    how the phone company gives you caller id then gives businesses unlisted
    #'s on the caller id, and they then try to sell a privacy manager
    program to block out the unwanted calls.

    I never ever give out my real phone # now instead I give an email
    address, and someone calling and the phone company asking for the # of
    Brian Peterson will draw a blank.

    A little know proviso of the nation do not call registry is that people
    may call who have business with you, and that also included people
    associated with the phone company. So say SBC operates a telemarketing
    operation the telemarketers would have access to your #.
