In my area, these chaps would have their leases cancelled so fast by the Malls, they would never know what hit them. Objectionable, harassing sales conduct is as much a "no-no" as panhandling would be.

You're right, it seems stupid to me to have these people calling out to random people walking through the mall, if they'd market instead the right people would be calling them. And I also avoid certain areas because of this so one must wonder how many stores are losing potential customers because these annoying harrassing yelling guys are driving people away from certain areas of the mall.

I hear ya. Everytime I go to the mall and walk near those cellphone booths, I have to pretend that I'm busying doing something so that they don't call out to me. I already have a cellphone and it's under a contract, so I wouldn't even want to bother talking to them. But if I had a contact information, and knew that they offered one of the best services around, then after my current contract is over, I'd call them when I go out cellphone searching. I like your idea on ending the cold calling method.. they do work, but there are so many other methods that work even better without annoying the hell out of people.
