Nope, I actually encorage potential customers to do so by advertising there! LOL
Just kidding I know that's not what you ment.

I don't belive cold calling businesses is illegal. Residential isn't with the exception of folks onthe national do not call list which you'd have to look into purchasing.

Hi Yobany,

I was looking online for this but couldn't find anything about how the do not call list applies to commercial phone numbers.

Can you give us a little insight as to what you are going to be doing?

We encourage companies to pick up the phone and call many numbers. If you are doing a massive telemarketing ring then it is trouble but if you are coldcalling just for a time being then do it. The more people you talk to the better set a goal of how many people you want to talk to on a phone in a day and a goal of how many people in person in a day. That is always been my look at it.

Hi Yam,

Are these residential or commercial numbers?

I think the do not call registry applies to all residential phone numbers. No matter what you are selling. I know that you can get fined and even get jail time... However, I do not think its illegal to call commercial phones... ring away!!!
