Local calls to require 402 prefix starting Saturday

Beginning this Saturday, Feb. 26, residents of eastern Nebraska will begin using a new procedure for making local telephone calls.

Those who live in the 402 region will need to dial 402 plus the seven-digit local number when making local calls. If the caller attempts to dial only seven digits, a recording will direct him or her to add the area code.

This change is the first step to overlaying a new area code in the 402 region.
