Changes to Area Code 217

If you have the 217 Area Code, we want to make sure that you are aware of, and prepared for, a calling change coming this month. The Illinois Commerce Commission has approved the addition of the 447 area code to the geographic region served by the 217 area code. Because there will be two area codes serving the same region, it will be necessary to dial or enter the full number, including the area code, for ALL calls–even local calls within the same area code.
The grace period for this transition ends on February 27, 2021 and all calls must include the area code. If only a 7-digit number is entered, the call will not go through and you will hear a recording instructing you to hang up and dial again.
So now is a good time to go through your contact lists in your phone and add the area code when necessary.
