Calling San Diego! New Dialing Procedures Are Mandatory Starting May 19: CPUC Information Alert

 Permanent link   All Posts

Beginning on May 19, 2018, residents and businesses with 619 and 858 area codes (greater San Diego) must dial 1 + area code + telephone number for all calls.  After that date, if callers do not use the new dialing procedures, the call will not be completed and a recording will instruct the caller to hang up and dial again using the new dialing procedure.

In April 2017, the CPUC ordered that the existing 619/858 boundary be removed to allow the existing 858 area code to serve the same geographic region as the existing 619 area code, and conversely, the existing 619 area code to serve the same geographic region as the existing 858 area code.  The CPUC implemented this change to ensure that consumers and businesses in the greater San Diego area have continued access to telephone numbers from the wireline, wireless, and Voice over Internet Protocol providers of their choice.
