Quote from: rp2813 on January 06, 2009, 01:27:59 PMInteresting dialing issue between 480 and 602. Maybe this is the dreaded "overlay" situation where two "area" codes are being used within the same boundary? I've not heard of the situation where dialing "1" before the remaining 10 digits isn't required. That's very confusing and sloppy behavior on the part of the telco. Just another reason I'm against overlays if this is the result...
QuoteNow that we have area codes that don't have a "0" or "1" as the middle digit, dialing "1" up front is necessary for the switching equipment to know the subscriber is calling outside of their own area code.
