Ten-Digit Dialing in CT


10-digit dialing on all phones throughout CT starts tomorrow instead of Dec. 1.

Starting tomorrow in Connecticut, you’re going to have to get into the habit of dialing the 10-digit phone number. All phone calls — even to your next door neighbor — will require the area code and the seven-digit phone number.  This includes cell phones, fax  machines, and PDAs. Believe it or not, some of you are doing it now.

Calls outside the calling area in Connecticut will need the “1” followed by the 10-digit phone number. The reason for this is because Connecticut is almost out of numbers under the 860 and 203 area codes respectively and, as a result, area codes 475 and 959 will be added.
