As stated in IVLV Newsletter, starting May 3, 2014, you must include the area code for all local calls. If you do not, the call will not be completed. Clark County, including Las Vegas, will be receiving a new 725 area code. All calls must include the area code regardless if it is long distance or not. What is your opinion of adding a new area code? We want to hear from you!  (See other readers’ opinions below.)

Reader Poll Replies:

I guess it is progress but is seems odd to me that you could not add a bunch more prefix numbers and still only have one area code 702.  Walter Smith  Colorado

Living here in California I have gotten use to using the full 10 digits to call someone only a block away.   It is a pain but i guess it is necessary?  Donna J.  Los Angeles, CA

I live in Ohio and this occurred back a few decades ago in my area. At first there was great opposition to it but with time that quieted down and now it is routine. Progress is not obtained without efforts being made. Habits at times impede progress. Welcome to the 21st century Nevadans.  Nick Cignetti    North Canton OH

Sounds like a giant step backwards. Do I need to use a rotary phone to make a call?  William Lockhart  Wateford/NY

Other states do this when calling other area codes. But calling within that same area code? that's not right. Sounds like the great state of Nv. or maybe its the phone co. just wants to cause trouble and want to see unhappy people   steve   sedalia mo.

Lots of states have added area codes, but none that I know of required the area code for local calls. Here in Indiana they have added two area codes, but people that live in the new area codes still only dial a 7 digit number.  There is something wrong with this picture.  Don Bartlett  Indianapolis, Indiana

It is the price of progress. I do think they should do it the way it was done in the Phoenix metro area when we got new area codes. They simply split the county with the west side getting 623, central stayed with 602, and the east side got 480. It is confusing to have it mixed together...area code should be just that...for an area.  Suzanne Matlosz  Mesa/AZ

Most states and certainly major cities have an area code.... so why not a grand city like Las Vegas? It's a good thing. It'll help ID the city.  marie jank   Venezuela
