Before you lock in to a new phone number, do some quick due diligence. Go to callercomplaints.com and search on the new telephone number to make sure it is not “polluted”. Getting a new phone number that has a bad history, especially for a business, can be devastating. It is not worth the time to deal with nagging creditors calling about someone you don’t know (i.e. who had the phone number previously). Don’t forget to register your new phone number on the national do-not-call registry.
