Phone FAQs

What will I need to do?

In addition to changing your calling procedures, all services, automatic dialing equipment, or other types of equipment that are programmed with a 7-digit number will need to be reprogrammed to use the new dialing procedures. This includes life safety systems, PBXs, mobile phone contact lists, fax machines, internet dial-up numbers, alarm and security systems, gates, speed dialers, call forwarding settings, voicemail services, etc.

You’ll also want to update your personal contact information such as business cards, website, and your pet’s or your personal ID tags, to ensure the area code is included.
