(INDIANAPOLIS) - Indiana residents irritated by unwanted telemarketing calls have until today to meet the state's latest deadline for its do-not-call list.

Hoosiers can register their landlines, cellphones, prepaid wireless numbers and Voice over Internet Protocol numbers with Indiana's registry at www.indianaconsumer.com or directly at www.in.gov/attorneygeneral/2445.htm.

The Journal Gazette reports that complaints about unsolicited calls are dropping, but the Indiana Attorney General's Office still gets thousands of complaints a year.

More than half of the 14,000 do-not-call complaints the state received last year involved robocalls, which are automated calls without a person on the other end of the line.

Two years ago, the state received about 1,000 complaints regarding robocalls each month, but the monthly tally has dropped to 550.

Since January, nearly 4,000 complaints were registered for any type of unsolicited call.
