If you do give out a mobile number, be sure to tell companies that it's mobile. If someone calls with a pitch, ask them to take you off their list, and also mention that they have called a mobile number. It's illegal for telemarketers to use autodialers to reach mobile numbers, so they'll likely respond quickly if you let them know.I've been pretty lucky: I've rarely been the recipient of spam or sales pitches on my cell. Part of the credit goes to Gmail, which I use to filter the spam from my primary domain (meaning I get virtually zero spam on the desktop, too). What about you? Have you been the victim of cell spam? If so, have you been able to stop it?
