On June 1, 2013 mandatory 10 digit dialing became required in the area code 512 coverage area. Ten digit dialing (area code + seven digit number) is necessary in the 512/737 overlay because two different homes in the same geographic area can have the same seven digit phone number but each would have a different area code.
