Posted August 1, 2001

— Get ready to start dialing a few more numbers, even if you are trying to call your best friend across the street.

Optional ten digit dialing for Verizon customers takes effect Aug. 1 for all local calls in the 919 area code. Mandatory dialing begins February 6, 2002.

Ten digit dialing is a result of the new 984 area code overlay for parts of the Triangle.

That area code will provide additional numbers for the Research Triangle region.
