10-Digit Dialing - October 24, 2021 Deadline 10-Digit Dialing - 603 is Mandatory

On October 24, 2021, '603' is Mandatory!

On July 16, 2020, the Federal Communications Commission approved 9-8-8 as the new abbreviated dialing
code for the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. Similar to 9-1-1, the new dialing code will provide an easy to remember number for anyone facing a mental health crisis.

To prevent problems with reaching the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline, any area code that uses the 9-8-8 prefix in telephone numbers will be required to adopt 10-digit local dialing (area code + telephone number). As a result, 82 area codes in 36 states must switch to 10-digit dialing including New Hampshire.
