    Verizon to change how to dial a # in Connecticut




    I am sure this is with all other carriers as well, I was made aware by Verizon though. If you reside in Connecticut, you may or may not have heard that CT is adding two new area code overlays. 203 area code will also have a 475 area code and 860 will also have 959. Due to this, you must enter the area code when making a call, every time!

    I'm so dumb...I thought this thread was a new way to dial the pound sign in CT.
    Wow, I need some sleep.

    Right above you in MA, we only have to dial 7 numbers. I guess we are behind the times too.

    I'm still laughing myself...I'm not even going to change the name of the thread which I was originally going to do.

    I deserve to be made fun of. :147:
