Dialing Up Changes for WI Phones

Dialing Up Changes for WI Phones

 Many Wisconsin residents are changing the way they dial phone numbers. 

Starting today, residents with the two-six-two, four-one-four, six-zero-eight and nine-two-zero area codes have to use all ten digits when making local calls.   Those with five-four-three and seven-one-five area codes were already required to use all ten numbers. 

The change comes as the Federal Communications Commission launches the number nine-eight-eight as a new national suicide and mental health helpline.
