LAS VEGAS -- Say goodbye to dialing seven digits, you'll now have to use ten because Clark County is adding a second area code. It will be the state's third area code.
The transition period starts Saturday but it will be mandatory soon. The county's second area code means everyone will have to dial 10-digits, even if you are calling right next door.
The change to multiple area codes is a sign of the times in our growing city. With demand for phone numbers at its peak there are only so many to go around and the "702" area code is reaching its max.
Before that shortage puts us in a bind, "725" will be added. It will be assigned to newcomers in the county.
It could become a headache for some. You'll have to re-program anything hooked up to phone line.
Cara Clarke with the Las Vegas Chamber of Commerce said businesses may feel it the worst.
"First of all, if you have any equipment like fax machines or security systems or alarm systems or anything that relies on a phone line you want to make sure they have 10 digit dialing capabilities and the 702 area code is programmed into it," said Clarke.
If this sounds like an overwhelming and expensive task the good news is you can start preparing today.
"Starting early is key. There may be some extra cost attached to reprinting your material or tech adjustments you need to make. Now is the time for business to take a look at that and plan for their budgets. Whether that can accrue the cost now, or if they have to budget for it in 2014," said Clarke.
The transition period is 9 months long. Using ten digits will become mandatory on May 3, 2014.
