Growth Triggers Need For New Area Code
Growth Triggers Need For New Area Code

Listen
AIR DATE: October 22, 2012

    It would be nice if they just gave the new area code numbers to only mobile phones and kept land lines as 702 numbers. That way you would know whether you were dialing a cell phone just by looking at the number itself.
