10 Digit Dialing is Here!
In July 2020, the Federal Communications Commission adopted an order approving the designation of 988 as the 3-digit dialing code for the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. To facilitate implementation, area codes across the country where the 988 prefix is a working prefix and which now use 7-digit local dialing must transition to 10-digit local dialing. This includes the 605-area code in our service area. Click here to read requirements and helpful tips.

Starting July 15, 2022, it will be MANDATORY to dial the 605-area code plus the 7-digit phone number to make local calls. You can start practicing 10-digit dialing, now. In addition to changing your dialing routine, you’ll also have to reprogram 7-digit local numbers to 10-digit numbers if you use speed dial or any other system that automatically makes calls for you.
