i-Communicate G3 customers need not worry! Read on to find out why...
Recently New York State made some announcements regarding using all 10 digits in a phone number in order to make local calls. Here is what they have advised.
"Beginning April 24, 2021, to begin to become accustomed to 10-digit dialing, consumers should begin dialing 10 digits (3-digit area code + 7-digit telephone number) for all local calls."
i-Communciate G3 customers will not need to worry about this requirement. When a G3 customer dials just 7 digits, their call will still be completed.
"Beginning October 24, 2021, consumers must dial 10-digits (area code + telephone number) for all local calls. On and after this date, local calls dialed with only 7 digits may not be completed, and a recording will inform you that your call cannot be completed as dialed. Consumers must hang up and dial again using the area code and the 7-digit number."
i-Communciate G3 customers will not need to worry about this requirement. When a G3 customer dials just 7 digits, their call will still be completed. Why? Because i-Communicate G3 automatically pulses the full 10 digits, even when you just dial the 7 local digits.
"Beginning July 16, 2022, dialing “988” will route calls to the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline."
So the long and the short of this change is that if you are an i-Communicate G3 customer, it's 'business as usual' for you. No worries. No hassle. We've got your back!
