Comments:I do not want ANY telemarketing calls period. I receive 5 or six telemarketing text messages a day all of which cost me 45 cents EACH. I do not open them I do not read them but my cell phone company Nextel adds the charge to my monthly bill. This requires I call Nextel and explain EVERY month that these are unopened telemarketing messages. After some discussion thet finally remove the charege from my bill. They (Nextel) claim there is no way they can block these messages so I must go through this every month. I wonder how many thousands of dollars are just paid by subscribers who pay the bill without checking this out or simply do not have the time to hassle with their cell phone provider.
