Indiana residents who missed a deadline for adding their cell phone numbers to the state's do-not-call registry blocking telemarketing calls have extra time to sign up.
WRTV-TV reports that the deadline which had been Tuesday night has been extended until 11:59 p.m. Friday. People who sign up by that time should have calls from unwanted solicitors stopped on July 1.
Gov. Mitch Daniels signed a bill last week that extended the state's do-not-call law that had applied only to land lines to cell phones. Telemarketers who contact registered cell phone users will face the same penalties as those who call a registered land line.
People can sign up online at www.in.gov/attorneygeneral/2446.htm or by calling 888-834-9969.
