Georgia Cell Phone Privacy Law Enacted

Georgia has enacted a law preventing cell phone numbers from being put in a directory without consent.

The Governor of Georgia, Sonny Perdue, signed Senate Bill 46, also called "The Wireless Privacy Act, on Tuesday.

The law requires wireless telehone service providers to obtain a a customer's express consent
before including his or her name and phone number in any wireless phone number directory or database.

"With the prevalence of mobile phones, there is a need to protect Georgians from unsolicited mobile calls by telemarketers and others." It only adds insult to injury when you have to pay to receive a junk phone calll," the Governor said.

Consumers have a private right of civil legal action if their number is listed unlawfully.

The bill is effective immediately.
