Default New Mexico Area Code change

New Mexico Area Code Change Information — Qwest Communications

Just a friendly reminder for those not in the Albuquerque/Santa Fe area, we are about to go the way of the few other remaining 1 area code states, come October 7th. I guess we are becoming popular, otherwise such a change would not be required.

I feel the PRC made the right decision, finally, about what to do about the overcrowded 505. Of course, I live in Albuquerque, so that makes me biased.

After living in a huge city with 10-digit dialing, I think even the 575 takers can take some comfort that only their incoming long distance will see much of a change. 10 digit dialing really stinks.

10 digit dialing isn't so bad once you get used to it. What I hate is when you're in a multi-area code area and someone puts a sign (for sale, for rent, etc) in their yard with no area code. Like I'm supposed to know what AC to dial when I have a choice of 4? Sheesh.

I think they shouldve just let all the new numbers be 575 and keep the old 505. I can see the drawbacks and the benefits of this though, and I wouldnt say anybody is wrong for disagreeing with me. Its going to cost me several thousand dollars to update all my stuff, and im just running a small office. Id hate to see the expense incurred by bigger business. It was always going to happen this way though, the capitol and the bigger cities would never be inconvenienced like that .....
