407/321 Relief Plan

Ten-Digit Dialing Is Now Mandatory

Effective December 1, 1999, customers in the 407 Central Florida Region* must dial ten digits (three-digit area code plus the seven-digit phone number) when making local calls within the 407 calling region (see map). If customers don't dial ten digits when placing local calls, a recording will ask them to hang up and call again using the ten-digit phone number.

To accommodate ten-digit dialing, you'll need to reprogram all telecommunications equipment that dials number automatically, for example, speed dialers, fax machines, PBXs, etc. (Consult your equipment vendor if you're not sure of your equipment's capabilities.)

In addition, a new area code, 321, will be implemented January 15, 2000, in the same calling territory as an overlay. In an overlay situation, the 321 area code is placed over the 407 area code, with both codes sharing the same geographic boundaries. Ten-digit dialing will be required in both the existing 407 and the new 321 area code region.
