Area code spinoff

So, here is an interesting question about area codes. Where I live, you have to dial area code to dial just about anyone. Whether they live out of state, in another county/area code, or even your next-door neighbor.

Is it like that for anyone else?

From my land line no, as long as they are a 573 area code I don't need too. From my cell I have to dial the area code every time.

Yes, we have to dial them to call even our neighbor as well.

For us, it doesn't matter if it's cell, land, or a business line. Always area codes. It's weird, and I was a pre-teen when it changed over that way, so I remember the frustration of people having to get used to it.

Nope, I only have a land line. I know when we had a cell we had to all the time.

There is like three area codes for my town. We always have to dial the area code first when placing a call.

I only make calls from my cell phone or at work, and I have to include the area code when dialing for both, even local numbers.
