Is it legal for campaigns to call your cell phone?
 
what the subject says? Is it legal for campaigns or pollsters?

Why wouldn't it be? Esp considering the number of people who are switching to their cell phone being their only phone they are going to have to deal w/ an increasing number of the same type of annoyance calls.

Aren't they technically "unlisted" numbers?

I believe they are... for now, there was a meeting on the hill last week (or the week before) about making a national directory. Even then as long as they aren't on the "do not call list" it's not illegal to call an unlisted number.

plus the do not call list doesnt apply to political campaigns. my coworkers thought that it was illegal. i figured i'd ask here

I would think it would be illegal since most people have to pay for incoming minutes.

I guess a variety of those calls would be from your party leaders if you registered under a party, that's probably where they get your info, like if you listed your cell phone on your registration. If it's a live call, I don't see why you can't tell them to remove your name from the calling list.
