One of the many ways that technology is changing and challenging our business is through the increased use of cell phones by consumers. What do you need to know about the rules and guidelines governing your dialing systems when calling cell phones?
Firms need to consider the differences between various kinds of telephone communications and how to avoid collection errors that can cost you real money. There are some practical ideas you can implement that will help you improve your communications compliance, and, over time, limit your company’s regulatory exposure and reduce the overall cost of litigation.

- Q&A from the Webinar
- Does a mobile phone user’s voicemail identifying himself, stating his number, and indicating that this is the number with which the person can be reached, equal prior express consent to be autodialed and prerecorded messaged?
- In the most technical sense, could an individual working for a business, calling with a smartphone, count as a violation? Because a smartphone can download such a wide range of apps, one of which can likely make it dial automatically.
- If a manual system/clicker system is used for all cell phones, safe to say consent and all the headaches that come from managing it is irrelevant?
- If we change the word “call” to “contact,” does that expand our consent to text message?
- What is the statute of limitations on consumer actions taken due to TCPA violations?
- Let’s say I’ve got a Wells Fargo account, and that gets sold. And the consumer goes to Wells Fargo later and revokes consent from Wells Fargo. That doesn’t revoke the consent anymore, does it, because Wells Fargo is no longer in possession of the right about revocation. Is that correct?
