Soon it's going to take a little extra effort on your part to make a phone call in the Poconos.

10-digit dialing begins September 21st for residential and business customers within the existing 570 area code.

That means all calls must be made using the area code plus the seven-digit phone number.

Just dialing the regular phone number won't cut it anymore.
