10 Digit Dialing Coming to 518 Area Code


People with a New York 518 area code will soon have to begin dialing 10 digit phone numbers for local calls within the code region, which covers all or part of the state's 17 eastern counties. The new procedure will take effect on August 19 and comes as a result of the new 838 area code covering the same area.
