Wisconsin’s ‘No Call’ list quarterly deadline Aug. 31
MADISON Wisconsin residents have until Fri., Aug. 31 to add their residential landline and cell phone numbers to Wisconsin’s No Call list, receiving protection from unsolicited telemarketing phone calls and text messages starting on Oct. 1.
The free No Call service is managed by the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection. The service covers Wisconsin consumers’ residential landline, VoIP and cellular numbers and includes protections against unwanted text messages. Consumers can register multiple numbers. Registrations are good for two years, but consumers can re-register their numbers at any time.
To add your numbers(s) to the list, visit nocall.wisconsin.gov or call 1-866-9NO-CALL (1-866-966-2255). The website and toll-free numbers are available all day, every day.
Political calls, calls from non-profit organizations and calls made in response to your written or verbal request or permission are not covered by the No Call law. Additional information is at nocall.wisocnsin.gov.
The list is updated four times per calendar year (Jan. 1, April 1, July 1 and Oct. 1). The registration process is continuous, but those who sign up after the upcoming Aug. 31 deadline will not be added to the list until Jan. 1.
