Starting October 1, 2000 the 503 area code will be switching to 10-digit dialing. 10-digit also works in the 360 area code. This means all of our dialup customers will need to change the phone number you dial to connect to us to reflect the new 10 digit dialing. If you haven’t already done this, please follow these directions on how to add the area code to the phone number you dial.  You can make these changes today as 10 digit dialing works now!

Note: This only affects modem users, DSL customers will be unaffected by this change.
