New Dialing Procedure for Local Calls & Community Directory September Updates

New dialing procedure for local calls:

Beginning October 24, 2021, you must dial the area code + telephone for all local calls in Virginia area codes 276 & 804.

To complete all local calls, you need to dial either the area code + telephone number or 1 + area code + telephone number.  This applies to all calls within your area code (e.g. 804) that are currently dialed with seven digits.

On or after October 24, 2021, local calls dialed with only 7 digits may not be completed and a recording may inform you that your call cannot be completed as dialed.

Additionally consider that all services, automatic dialing equipment, and other equipment programmed to complete calls to 7-digit local numbers will need to be reprogrammed to complete calls to 10-digit numbers.

If you have questions regarding the new dialing procedure for local calls, please visit or call Verizon at 1-800-Verizon (1.800.837.4966).
