Comments:First - I am on the do-not-call list and I mean it. I do not want junk calls of any kind, in-person, fax, prerecorded, or anything else technology can create. Second - It would be nice if this was in plain English, as I do not think the general public (including me) knows what abandonment means and the difference per day vs. 30 days makes. If abandonment has to do with answering a phone with nobody on the other end, I would like to see a 0% abandonment rate per second. Even being on the do-not-call list, I still get these, but cannot report them. Third - I pay for phone service for MY communication needs. I am not paying for anyone to annoy me with sales calls. I pay for voice mail to get the messages that are important to me, NOT for the benefit of those trying to sell me something. Fourth - Recorded messages are definately on my list of annoyances. I never listen to them and really cannot stand being interupted by them. My phone is My property, I pay for it for MY personal use. I do not pay for the purpose of receiving advertisements. I am against anything that allows more junk calls. Thank you for allowing input.
