Tech: Orange County To Add 657 Area Code Overlay

Things I Won't Have To Worry About Dep't: Orange County's 714 area code will be overlaid with a new 657 area code as early as April, 2008, by unanimous vote of the California Public Utilities Commission. Owners of existing phone numbers in 714-land will get to keep them and new phones will get the 657 numbers, but mandatory 1+10-digit dialing will begin in August, 2008. Thank God they didn't do a split.

We're moving to 562-land, so nyaah: according to NANPA (PDF), the industry nonprofit that takes care of these details, 562 isn't threatened with number exhaustion until 2020 at the earliest. On the other hand, mandatory 10-digit dialing to pretty much everyone now.
