As of October 1st 2014 people living in these areas will need to type in the area code for any number they call. Even if you’re ringing a friend over the road the area code will be needed! This is due to the areas gradually running out of numbers to be given out.
Without dialling the area code first you may not be put through to the person you expected!!
No disruption is due on the day but we’d advise you to get into the habit of dialling the area codes now before the changeover occurs.
