BREAKING NEWS

Start Including Area Codes

John AndersonOctober 20, 2021

You’ll need to include the area code when making most phone calls in Kansas or, starting Sunday, the call won’t go through. Ten-digit dialing will be required for people living in the 785 and 620 area codes when they make local calls starting Oct. 24. People trying to make local calls using only seven digits will get a recording, stating the call cannot be completed as dialed. The change sets the stage for an easier way for people in crisis to reach the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. The KCC and FCC remind people they may need to reprogram any services with automatic dialing equipment, such as life safety systems, medical monitoring devices, security systems and fire alarms, along with mobile phone contact lists and call forwarding settings.
