Extra work for those with phones calling within area code 415

Easy solution, dial 1-415 first

NBC Bay Area local News/Lisa Fernandez, 2/20/15. "415 area code overlaid with 628 for parts of Marin, San Mateo Counties."

.... "Beginning on Saturday (2/21/15), the 415 area code will be "overlaid" by the 628 in these cities: the county of San Francisco, most of Marin County and a small portion of San Mateo County, serving the communities of Belvedere, Brisbane, Corte Madera, Daly City, Fairfax, Ignacio, Inverness, Larkspur, Mill Valley, Nicasio, Novato, Point Reyes, Ross, San Anselmo, San Francisco, San Rafael, Sausalito, Stinson Beach and Tiburon.  

So, if you had 415, you won't lose it. But if you get a new number, you're likely to get assigned to 628. That means next- door neighbors might have different area codes. Plus, everyone in the 415 area code will need to add the “415” to make a call. If you’re calling from a landline, you’ll have to add a “1” at the beginning."  Read more,  history of area 415 and other local area codes included.
