El Paso phone calls will soon require ten digits

EL PASO, Texas – (KTSM) Starting on Monday, October 25, 2021, Texans with phone numbers in the 254, 361, 409, 806, 830, 915 and 940 area codes must dial 10-digits (area code + telephone number) for all local calls. Beginning October 25, local calls dialed with only seven digits will reach a recording prompting them to hang up and dial again using both the area code with the seven-digit telephone number.

Calls to El Paso will soon require 10 digits to dial. A person uses a smart phone in this Sept. 16, 2017, file photo in Chicago. Almost everyone in the United States agrees that the spread of disinformation is a concern. Most people believe that individual users, as well as social media businesses, are to blame for the issue. According to a new poll conducted by The Pearson Institute and the Associated Press—NORC Center for Public Affairs Research, this is the case.

This change comes as the Federal Communications Commission issued an order approving 988 as the three-digit abbreviated dialing code for the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. The Order requires all telecommunications providers to make any network changes necessary to ensure 988 access by July 16, 2022. Several numbers in El Paso area codes use the 988 prefixes, therefore, those areas must transition from seven-digit to 10-digit local dialing.

April 24, 2021 marked the beginning of a “permissive dialing period” in which callers in those area codes were encouraged to adopt the ten-digit dialing practice. That period expires on October 24, 2021, meaning only calls dialed with ten digits will be connected thereafter. Customers should also ensure the area code is included in all other places where a telephone number is displayed like their websites, personal and business stationery, advertising materials, personal and business checks, and even personal or pet ID tags.
