We are running out of phone numbers in the 315 area. Should they just start issueing a new area code and require everybody to dial 11 numbers or should they do a geographic split in which a certin area would be given a new code and the other area keeps 315?

How about letting St. Lawrence or Essex Counties or one of the other less populated counties change their area code instead.

Because more numbers are used here and needed here. That means less numbers are used in those counties and less would be available to switch over.

This has happened everywhere in the country for years and 315s have been kicking & screaming and whining about it almost as long. Get over it. How many numbers are actually dialed nowadays versus years ago? Most are saved in your phone. It's not a big deal. Ya want the technology? Then deal with it.

Actually it's just the opposite. Syracuse...being the largest, would get to keep 315 and everyone else would get a new area code. I'd rather see them assign a new area code to all new numbers and leave the old ones as is. I'm sure most business customers would agree so they wouldn't have to change all their advertising, menus, business cards, etc.

No way - I don't want one neighbor with one area code and another neighbor with a different one.

They should take the latitude from the southern part of lake ontario (everything east of the southerne border to the north) and change that/ LEAVE the 315 for syracuse/utica etc. Here are some questions:

1. Who makes the final decision and based on what?

2. When will a decision be made?

3. When will it go into effect?

4.Does our opinion matter?

I prefer giving all new numbers a new area code over splitting on a geographical basis because it would require less change -- advertising, re-programming speed-dial lists, etc..

In my mind, phone numbers are now 10-digit, not 7 anymore. One of the reasons I carry a cell phone is so I no longer have to remember phone numbers, my phone remembers them for me.
