10-Digit Dialing for Local Numbers begins Oct. 24, 2021

In preparation for the new 988 Suicide Prevention Lifeline, New Mexicans and citizens of 34 other states (82 area codes) will need to start dialing all 10 digits of a phone number for all calls, including local calls. This is a transitional period so please continue to use the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline’s 1-800-273-TALK (8255) number if you need help. 10-digit dialing begins this Sunday, Oct 24th. You can learn more about 10-digit dialing on the FCC's website at the link below.
