    Default Local Calling

    Anyone having issues calling locally from Shaw phone numbers? After chatting with a Shaw rep online, I was informed by him that they were notified by the CRTC this morning that we will have to use 10 digit dialing. So if you can't get through to a number, dial the area code first.

    Ten digit dialing has been on the horizon for a long time now. My understanding is that by next year, we will be required to use it permanently. My cell phone requires it now.

    this is an issue well announced, has nothing to do with Shaw or Bell; everyone is going 10 digit as it has been in the old 416 and 905 southern ontario corridor for a few years now
