Change coming to phone calls

Wisconsin residents will have to dial 10 digits to make local calls starting this fall. Right now, people in Wisconsin can place a call to a number in the same area code without dialing the area code. The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports that beginning Oct. 23, people will need to include the area code in all calls. The change will be for both landlines and cellphones and will affect cell phones in all six of Wisconsin’s area codes. Wisconsin joins 24 other states in switching to ten-digit dialing.
