I don't currently get soliciting calls on my cell phone. My cell phone is

My understanding is that it is completely illegal to place unsolicited
telephone marketing calls to cell phones, period.

The reason being, that by calling your cell phone, they incur a monetary
const to you, the receiver of the call - which doesn't happen when they
call your home phone number.
