518 to begin 10-digit dialing Saturday
March 17, 2017 12:32 PM
The way you dial the phone in the 518 is about to change.
The state Public Service Commission is adding a new area code. They'll start assigning 838 to new phone lines starting on September 19.
However, Saturday you need to dial all 10 digits for all calls within the 518 area code.
A grace period lasts until August 19.
