(WIVB) — Anyone who lives in the 716 area code is now required to use 10-digit dialing.
That means you must dial the area code first to make local calls.
The Federal Communications Commission is made the change as it prepares to roll out its new three-digit suicide hotline number this summer.
The FCC has approved 988 as the new number for the lifeline.
