Gossips warned you about this back in March, but now time is running out. In less than a month, on August 19, you will have to dial 10 digits—area code + number—to make any phone call, even if the person you are calling has the same area code you do. That's because, starting on September 19, new phone numbers will be issued with a new area code: 838. The part of New York that was once the 518 area code will now have two different area codes. You can read all about it here: "Local calls in 518 require dialing ten digits, in less than a month."
