Reminder: New Overlay Area Code for Avalon, Southern New Jersey
Beginning in August, 2018 

"To ensure a continuing supply of telephone numbers, the new area 640 code is being added to the same geographic area currently served by the existing 609 area code in New Jersey. This process is known as an area code overlay, and requires a new dialing procedure. In connection with this overlay, all seven-digit dialed calls between area codes 609 and 856 will be eliminated and will require a new dialing procedure."

  Call From    Call To   New Dialing Procedure
  609 or 640   609 or 640   Area code + 7-digit telephone number
