Hoosiers face deadline to register for do-not-call list

February 21, 2017

Correction: An earlier version of this story contained the wrong deadline for registration on the do-not-call list.

Indiana residents are facing a fast-approaching deadline to add themselves to an updated list that will help them avoid unwanted calls from telemarketers.

The deadline to add a phone number to the state's "Do Not Call" list is Tuesday. The updated list will take effect April 1.

The list is updated quarterly.

The list works for phone numbers that are landlines, wireless numbers and prepaid wireless numbers. The list was started about 15 years ago.

As of Tuesday morning, nearly 171,200 Hoosiers had signed up for the list, the state said.

"If you don't sign up, it's a green light to the people who do follow the rules to simply call you and inundate you with a number of calls," Indiana Attorney General Curtis Hill said.

Registration is available on the attorney general's website.

There will be another chance to register this spring.
