This hadn't happened ever before and now for the past few weeks I have been getting sales calls via computer on my cell phone. You get a call, there's silence for a few seconds, and then someone gets on the line with a sales pitch.
Yesterday the same number called several times.
I registered with the national do not call government registry here:
The site says it may take a month for this to activate. Anyone registered their phone?

Yes, the telemarketers are hitting the cell phone numbers. They are also text messaging with sales pitches. I have been getting stuff on my ambulance's cell phone the past few weeks. They just go through the available numbers and whatever ones are activated get the calls. I just can't wait until I am in the middle of a 9-1-1 situation and can't contact my office because the line is tied up with an incoming call....
