February 3rd, 2001 the Kansas 316 area code will be split into two
different area codes. Wichita will retain the 316 area code and
the rest of the lower half of the state will have to change their
numbers. There will be a permissive dialing period which will give
callers time to adjust to the new 620 area code and for you to update
your posted phone numbers. Either area code, 620 or 316, will work
during this time. This period is supposed to be in effect from February
3rd, 2001 till sometime in November 2001 which gives you plenty
of time to update everything.
didn't realize how many things we would have to change, both for
our business and for our personal phone numbers - it adds up quick!
Therefore we decided to make a list up of everything that we would
need to change and have posted it here for you to print off. We
hope that you find it a helpful reminder for your home or business.
