Ten Digit Dialing Required This Month

Telephone calls to numbers with 660, 816 and 515 area codes will be required to dial local numbers using 10 digits – the area code plus the phone number effective October 24th. Seven digit dialing will no longer work in these area codes.

The change is due to the FCC adopting 988 as a new three-digit number to be used nationwide to reach the National Suicide Prevention and Mental Health Crisis Lifeline. The use of the new three-digit number will begin on July 16, 2022.

Residents in the 641 area code are not affected unless they are calling numbers in the affected areas. This change affects all landline and cell phone numbers.

GRM Networks reminds customers that local calls will still be considered local. Long distance calls will continue to be dialed as 1 plus the area code and telephone number.
