* Areas that require 1+10 digit dialing are New York City and California Area
Codes 310, 408, 424, 442, 657, 669, 714, 747, 760 and 818.
In some areas, a local call can still be completed by dialing
the seven-digit telephone number. But locations where an overlay has been implemented,
you must include the area code plus all seven digits of the telephone number to
complete a local call.
In New York City and California Area Codes 310, 408, 424, 442, 657, 669, 714, 747, 760 and 818, you must dial
1 + area code + seven-digit telephone number (1+10 digit dialing) to complete local calls. Refer to the
Customer Info Guide in your Verizon SuperMedia white pages directory for detailed
information about local dialing instructions for your area.
The Federal Communications Commission requires that 10-digit dialing be used
in any area where an overlay area code has been implemented. An area code overlay
means laying an additional area code over, or on top of, an existing area code that
serves the same region. When an overlay is used, your area code becomes part of
your telephone number and must be used in order for the call to be completed correctly.
If you forget to dial ten digits in areas where ten-digit dialing has been implemented*,
you will hear a recorded announcement telling you that the call cannot be completed
as dialed. Customers should use all 10 digits* when giving their number to family,
friends and customers. This will help everyone to remember that the area code needs
to be included in the telephone number.
To make a toll call, you must dial 1 + area code + seven-digit
telephone number. To learn more about what is considered local and toll calling
in your specific area, please refer to the Customer Info Guide in your Verizon SuperMedia white pages directory.
