[ARCHIVED] Effective Oct 24, calls to (914) area code require 10-digit dialing

FCC Update for Calls to 914 area codes:

Beginning October 24, callers to phone numbers starting with (914) area code will need to dial all 10 digits of the number.

On and after this date, local calls dialed with only seven digits may not connect, and a recording will inform you that your call cannot be completed as dialed. You must hang up and dial again using the area code and the seven-digit number. Dialing both the area code and the seven-digit number was necessary to ensure the call reached the intended recipient.

This change is to accommodate the addition of a National Suicide Prevention Lifeline, “988”.

During the transition to "988", Americans who need help should continue to contact the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline by calling 1-800-273-8255 (1-800-273-TALK) and through online chats. Veterans and Service members may reach the Veterans Crisis Line by pressing "1" after dialing, chatting online at, or texting 838255.
