Changes Coming in 812 Area Code
Telephone users in Indiana’s 812 area code should start using ten digits, rather than seven, to make local phone calls starting Saturday.
State officials say local calls made with seven digits will still work until early September, to give consumers in the 812 area code ample time to adjust to the changes.
The change in dialing patterns is necessary for the introduction of the new 930 area code, which will be implemented this fall.
Starting September 6th, you must use ten-digit dialing for all local phone calls, or you will get an error message.
Beginning October 6th, new telephone lines or services may be assigned numbers using the new 930 area code.
The new area code is being implemented due to projections that all numbers for the 812 area code will be exhausted in 2015.
