10-digit dialing

 

Issue:

Some states require 10-digit dialing for all outgoing calls. If you make calls from one of these states, you must include the area code in addition to the 7-digit phone number for call to succeed.

To avoid problems, you may want to update the contacts in your address book and any stored phone numbers for services such as call forwarding, call screening, and call blocking.

As of March 2018, Verizon and Cox have announced that all calls now require 10 digits and that they will no longer support 7 digit dialing on any of their networks. 

Note: Most 3-digits numbers, such as 911 and 411, don’t require an area code.

 

Resolution:

- For calls within your local calling area you will need to dial “Area code + 7 digit number.”

- For calls outside of your local calling area you will need to dial “1 + Area code + 7 digit number.”

- Though if you choose to use the second option for all calls, they will proceed as normal without issue.
