New Dialing Procedure Required Beginning August 18, 2018

According to a press release issued by the NJBPU, a new 640 area code is being added to the same geographic area currently served by area code 609. This process is known as an area code overlay, and requires a new dialing procedure. An overlay does not require customers to change their existing area code, but does require them to dial the area code and the seven-digit telephone number on calls within the same area code.
