The Alabama Public Service Commission has mandated 10 digit dialing by October 12, 2019: “Mandatory” ten-digit local dialing begins. Customers in the 205 area code must use ten-digit dialing for all local calls, otherwise, calls will not be completed and a recording will instruct callers to hang up and dial again.

All legacy Avaya and Nortel customers encouraged to schedule a service appointment to program their Nortel equipment to accommodate the new 10 digit dialing plan for area code 205.
