Stephen: 10 digit dialing arrives in NL this weekend
Written by Stephen Lethbridge on March 31, 2023
10 digit dialing comes into effect in Newfoundland & Labrador this Saturday, April 1st. All local calls will require the 709 prefix before the seven digit phone number in order for the call to connect and seven digit phone calls will be interrupted by a network message before going through. After May 31st, seven digit phone calls will not be connected. It is recommended that residents add the area code to their contacts or speed-dials, and to include the full 10 digit phone number on business cards, cheques, advertising, and other documents.
