  1. Make an API for filing "do not call" violations.

    It is currently somewhat tedious for people to file a 'do not call' violation through the web site. If there were an API available, then much of the information could be gathered automatically by a phone app. This would lead to better (more comprehensive and more accurate) reporting of do not call registry violations.

    • Off loading Cellular data to WiFi is becoming more common. Develop wifi standard for users to profit and open wifi more for off loading.

      Most facilities, users, home owners, business have WiFi, but generally they are secured for non-public use. If WIFi APP can be developed, for a user to profit from data usage (other than themselves), the vast majority of folks would OPEN their WiFi for cellular off loading, and profiting (all be it small) from OPEN wifi standard. It would still provide security for users, but open for public who would pay for data usage. In the future, we could extend this to 900MHz band, and OPEN wireless across the across the nation - broadband for all!

          • How Can We Prevent Political Activism Possessing Our Public Airways For Sinister Political Purposes, That DO NOT Serve the Public Interest!?

            Our Forefathers, but especially Washington and Adams, who served without political parties would be horrified today of the the public airways intended to serve the public interest, instead, being used as bully pulpit or vehicle for unopposed, ill informed and sinister political advertising only. Washington and Adams agreed one of the greatest threats to our Nation, exists political loyalties!! Regardless of politics, the FCC should not allow a political party, of any stripe, to conduct open and overt rallies and advertisements for political affiliations on its airways, ever!!!!! Such tasks should be for PAY for/private radio only!!! NOT on public…

                • complaints

                  Create a category in which people can complain about phone harassment for example, I have been called at least 30 times today and last night and I cant even complain anywhere but people say you can.

                  • Regional to International

                    Most things developers aren't concerned about how much impact the technology they create has and the reach it has on the community, less the world and the connecting body of the net. Europe has been in debate about transparency of trade expansion going on about the internet; I think developers should be aware of the growing changes in interests concerning the internet to find solutions of the growing demand for data transfer. If there were more regulation with open reference of actions, similar of a net congress; a meeting of the ambassador's of data in every region, I feel it…
