New Jersey is getting a new area code and it will mean changes to the way you dial.
Beginning August 18, 2018, you must use the new dialing procedure for all local calls. If you do not use the new dialing procedure, your call will not be completed, and a recording will instruct you to hang up and dial again. If you have any questions regarding this information, contact your service provider. For more information on dialing procedures, click here.
