Officials say it's needed to meet increasing consumer demand. Starting tomorrow, people living inside the 408 area code, must dial one-plus the area code and the telephone number in order to complete all their calls. No one's existing numbers will change.
SANTA CLARA COUNTY, Calif. --The Bay Area gets a brand new area code tomorrow, along with a change in the way you dial. The number is 669, and it will serve the same region as the existing 408 area code in the South Bay.
