Driven crazy by telemarketers

My cell phone has been exploding with calls from Indian pharmacy telemarketers in the past couple days -- as in, upwards of 20 calls a day. The numbers are all either "Unavailable" or "000-000-0000." I've asked a few of them to take me off their lists but, as expected, that was totally ineffectual. Do I have any recourse but to change my number if this keeps up?

when did video recording become common on cell phones?

How common was it for a cell phone to have video/audio in Oct.2007? Need to know if it would have been reasonable to assume that capability if someone was pointing there phone at you (vs. Just still photo). It seems reasonable now, but when did that come about?

Who's texting these creepy guys, and why do they think it's me?

I've been receiving a lot of strange calls/voicemails from equally strange old men lately, who are all horny as hell. They're responding to text messages they say they received from my number, and these texts are evidently of a porny nature. But I haven't sent them! I can't find evidence of any such texts whatsoever. I actually tried to talk to one of them to find out if the texts are actually FROM my number or if they just MENTION my number, but the guy was so flustered and embarrassed that all he'd do was stumble over his own tongue trying to protest his innocence. So, what's happening? Is this a known scam? Can I do anything about it other than change my number? [more inside]

Cell Service in Albuquerque- AT&T or other?

My girlfriend is moving to Albuquerque this summer for at least a year. She's had her heart set on an iPhone for years, but is wondering how AT&T coverage is in the city. As this will be her only phone, it's important that her phone work well for talking (not just data). How's AT&T's service in Albuquerque? What provider has the best Albuquerque coverage? Her contract w/ Verizon will be up soon so she can move to any provider.

I just want to read small interesting things

I'm looking for good mobile websites that are mainly text and update often, with individual content brief enough that I can finish reading by the time the bus comes. Despite what it might imply, texts from last night perfectly encapsulates what I want. I just want more of it. And maybe for it to be informative on top of entertaining. Just something internet-y that I can browse for 3-5 minutes at a time.

Ditch the Cell

Just finally got my Google Voice account! I have been using Skype for a long time, and now with google voice I am finally ready to get rid of the cell phone all together. BUT, can anyone recommend a good piece of hardware, (The iPod Touch comes to mind) that I can use "like" a cell phone, with minimal tweaking, where wifi is available. A netbook would work, but a little big, can you hook up a mic to any Palm or anything? Thanks everyone.

What does this High Pitched Noise mean? Am I a Dog?

I just bought a charger for my cellphone at Target. It's not the special manufacturer's brand, but an after market one that costs half of what the Sprint store chargers cost. When I plugged it into the wall, it started making a high pitched noise. I haven't plugged the other end of the charger into my phone for fear of ruining it. Is this normal? Is my charger bad? Thanks.
