Do-Not-Call Placed on Hold

Maybe there will be muzak for us while we wait on hold...

WASHINGTON (AP) - The operators of the national do-not-call registry have a message for the millions of people who signed up to be free of telemarketers: If you thought the phone was going to stop ringing, think again.

After a bewildering week of court reversals and breakneck congressional action, the Federal Trade Commission is acknowledging that its anti-telemarketing service has, at least for now, been placed on hold.

"You can still put your number on the national registry," the FTC said in a statement posted Friday on its Web site, "but for now, telemarketers are not required to comply with it."
