This is the first I'm hearing of this 1+ area code thing.

Actually, back a couple of years ago in Chicago, we started having to use the area code for even local calls.

Oh yeah, in Atlanta and DC and New York and I'm sure other large cities you have to use the area code, but here you don't. So I'm just supposed to magically know I'm calling a person that's far enough away that I have to dial 1+area code

You mean like, in New York? I've been having to dial +1 since I was like, 8.

For me too.  I guess it was about a decade ago.  More than a couple of years...  I haven't even lived in Chicago for six years.

I'm in the habit of always dialing the area code, but this +1 thing is bull. The phone companies are price gouging. If it's in the same area code, it should be local, htfh Bell.

eta:  I'm old enough that I grew up with a rotary dial phone.  Nothing was more annoying that dialing those seven numbers, just to get a message saying you have to do the area code.  And then you have to redial with with 11 more numbers.  Those rotary dial phones took f-ing forever.
