317-Phone #


Dear All,

Starting October 15th everyone in the 317 area code will need to be dialed using all 10 digits.  This was originally scheduled to start the end of this week, but it was extended for the additional month.  You may start using the 10 digits, and have been able to during the last 6 months, but starting October 15th it will be mandatory.  Please see the attached flyer for more details.  Also, there is a link below to go to the website that has a lot of additional information.  I did want to share this with you this week since there was some confusion as to when we have to dial the area code and the phone number for the call to go through.

This change is necessary due to the fact they are running out of numbers to use with 317 and our area will have another area code (463) in it.  We will all keep our numbers, but new numbers will be issued using the new area code in the future.

While I know this will be an adjustment for all of us, I did want everyone to be aware of the information, if you were not already.  Please share this information with not only your friends and neighbors in District 6, but also anyone who lives in the 317 area code.

Dear Councilors:


To follow up and give you an update, the deadline for mandatory 10-digit dialing in the 317 area code has been extended to October 15.


The attached flyer covers the basics, and we have more details on our website at http://www.in.gov/oucc/2800.htm.
