Cell phone users push no-call list numbers up

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- More than 1.6 million phone numbers are now registered for Wisconsin's do-not-call telemarketing list.

  A year ago, the list had 1.1 million numbers, but the state expanded the list to include cell phone users last June.

  The no-call list started in January 2003 and is updated every quarter.

  The deadline to sign up is Feb. 28 for the list that comes out in April.

  The Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection requires phone customers to renew their registration every two years.

  To sign up, call (866) 966-2255 or visit nocall.Wisconsin.gov.
