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.

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

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.

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
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
