You can register your cell phone on the same list that is used for landline phones: The instructions say it is not for cell phones because it is already illegal to make unsolicited telemarketing calls to cell phones, so theoretically it should not be necessary to register them. But we all know that that is not the case in real life. Registering your cell phone on the regular do not call list will cut down on some of the calls. But there is nothing that will eliminate the calls from the slimey companies who don't care about the law.

Most people under the age of 35 or so are so dependent on their cell phones that they hardly pay attention to the traditional landline phone that sits by quietly, sometimes never ringing for days.

Among the over 40 generation, landline phones are still popular as people are hesitant to abandon the traditional way of making and receiving calls. If you can get over the attachment to the old way of communicating you can save some money and simply use your cell phone for both calls at home and those while you are out and about.
