Arizona law prohibits, when soliciting by telephone, the use of caller identification blocking devices, artificial or prerecorded voices and unsolicited telephone calls to any mobile or telephone paging system and requires telephone solicitors to maintain a "no call" list of consumers who have previously stated a desire to not receive outbound calls from or on behalf of, the seller.
