Area Code Changes and New Dialing Procedure Information

New Dialing Procedure Required for New Jersey 609 Local Calls And for All Calls Between the 609 and 856 Area Codes Beginning August 18, 2018
To ensure a continuing supply of telephone numbers, the new area code 640 is being added to the same geographic area currently served by the existing area code 609. Since two area codes will now serve the same geographic region, seven-digit dialing in the 609 area will be eliminated and the area code must be used when dialing any telephone number, including calls within the same area code. This process is known as an area code overlay, and requires a new dialing procedure. An overlay does not require customers to change their existing area code, but does require them to dial the area code and the seven-digit telephone number on calls within the same area code. Also in connection with this overlay, the new dialing procedure requires the inclusion of the area code for all calls between the 609 and 856 area codes.
