The FCC will implement new guidelines for dialing starting this Sunday (Oct. 24), and if you live in the Mitten, make note that Michigan is one of 37 states impacted.

If you live in one of the four area codes in Michigan impacted by the guidelines, you’ll need to change how you make phone calls starting Sunday. For Michigan, this includes all of areas in the state’s 616, 810, 906, and 989 area codes.

Customers will have to do mandatory 10-digit dialing (area code + telephone number) for local calls. They will no longer be able to dial seven digits for local calls.
