We’re running out of telephone numbers in the 570 area, so it’s time to add a new area code. To ensure a continuing supply of numbers, the 272 area code is being added to the region currently served by 570. Because more than one area code will serve the same geographic region, the full area code plus telephone number is required for calls both outside and within the same area code. This is necessary after September 21, 2013. After October 1, 2013, all new lines in this area will be issued a 272 area code. Keep in mind that you need to update all contact lists and autodial systems to include 570. For detailed information, read the Verizon Wireless Area Code FAQ.
