Starting this Sunday, October 24, you will need to start dialing 10 digits to make a phone call to the 707 area code. You’ll need to update your contacts to include 1+707+the 7 digit phone number.
- Dialing ‘1+ an area code’ does not change what a call costs and does not mean that a call is a toll or long-distance call.
- Calling areas and rates will not change.
- What is a local call before the overlay will remain a local call after the overlay.
- Calls to 911, as well as 211, 311, 411, 511, 611, 711 and 811 will not be affected, and will continue to be dialed with 3 digits.
