UNL users will need to update speed dials on phones, fax machines and remember to dial 10 digits starting Feb. 26. A new 531 area code overlays the current 402 geographical area to meet the increased demand for additional numbers.
On Feb. 26 the dialing grace period ends and callers will need to dial 10 digits when calling inside or outside of their area code.
Current numbers within the UNL Centrex system will not change. The on-campus system 2- prefix and calls to 911 will remain the same. The area code of existing numbers (and all UNL 472 numbers) will remain 402. Service manuals to most UNL phonesets can be found online.
Updated Dialing Instructions:
On Campus: 2-XXXX
Local Off Campus: 9++<7 digit number>
Long Distance: 9+1++<7 digit number>
