Re: Addition of 4 digits to local landline calls

MF800,To complete calls, customers with a 916 area code should use 10-digit dialing for all calls. We will not have an automatic overlay for this. In addition to 10-digit dialing for all calls, all services, automatic dialing equipment, or other types of equipment that are programmed to dial a 7-digit number will need to be reprogrammed to use 10-digit dialing beginning February 10, 2018. After this date, if they do not use the new dialing procedures, a recording will instruct them to hang up and dial again using the new dialing procedure.
