10-digit dialing coming to Nova Scotia and PEI on August 23rd, new 782 area code in November


  • Max Fireman

    Poor souls, have to dial 10 digits to their destination.

  • EllaSilverYeah!

    who gets stuck with this 782 travesty?

  • Jakob

    There are places still doing 7-digit dialing? I thought this was long dead?

    • Basil

      I still remember 4-digit dialing when I was a kid, sonny.

      Now get off my lawn, you hooligans!

    It’s about time!! I’m from Ottawa, and every time I give out my number with area code here in Halifax everyone is like “yeah, I know the area code!” But then the same morons will be in Florida or Ontario and get confused when people ask them for their area code!!! How hard is it to understand that people are not clairvoyant, and can not guess your area code!!! I can’t wait to see the confusion and disaster this will create. “OHH NOOO I MUST REMEMBER TO PROVIDE 3 MORE NUMBERS!!”

    I remember the annoyance this caused when it launched in Alberta. I’m amazed it’s just now happening out there; it feels like it should’ve happened forever ago.
