Starting Thursday, those with Caller ID's will now be able to see the telemarketer's name pop up on the screen. Normally you would see the words "Out of Area" on your phone. But now that's changing, thanks to new regulations by the Federal Trade Commission.
The new requirement is part of the Federal "Do Not Call Registry". In the areas that do not have Caller ID technology, telemarketers in those areas are not required to comply with the new regulation.
