Area code overlay process begins Saturday

Follow The Republic:

Just for fun or perhaps practice, starting Saturday you can dial a 10-digit phone number including area code to make local calls.

Six months later, mandatory 10-digit local dialing in the 812 area code goes into effect — even if you're calling your next-door neighbor.

And a month after that, get ready for the 930 area code that will be assigned to new telephone customers in Columbus, Seymour and other cities currently covered in the 812 area code.
