Mandatory 10-digit dialing begins Saturday

Local News

Changes are coming to the way you make phone calls.

You must dial ten digits with the area code 814 starting Saturday, April 3.

The Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission says if you dial seven digits you will receive a message asking you to hang up.

The decision comes as the new 582 area code approaches, which could eventually be used if 814 is exhausted.
