10-Digit Dialing: SC Phone Customers

On April 25, 2020, 10-digit dialing in the 803 area code will go into effect. 

This is to accommodate a new area code—area code 839—which will be used for newly-activated phone numbers in the near future.

Note that current telephone numbers will not change. If you currently have an 803 area code, that area code also will remain unchanged. If you’re using the automatic dialing feature on your phone with pre-programmed numbers, please be aware that you will need to reprogram your settings for 10-digit dialing.

While seven-digit dialing will continue to be available during a transition period through mid-June, we encourage our phone users to begin to use 10-digit dialing to become accustomed to the new requirement.

Thank you for your understanding.
