As of Saturday, the term Countdown City is no more, as 2-1-0 isn't the only area code to identify San Antonio...As the implementation of the new "726" area code goes into effect this weekend.
The first step is requiring all San Antonio residents to dial the full 10 digits of a phone number in order to reach someone. If you don't, you'll receive an error message encouraging you to try again.
Then on October 23rd, numbers using 726 will be handed out.
In the meantime, you can still get a few 210 numbers that are left - I wonder who'll get the first 726 tattoo?
