HTC reminding all of upcoming area code update

Harrisonville Telephone Company is reminding all of the 618 area code update.

Any 7 digit dialed local phone call made in the 618 area code will not go through after Oct. 24, 2021 and a recording will inform the caller that the 7 digit dialed call cannot be completed as dialed. Customers will not have to change phone numbers and the price of the call will not change due to the dialing change.
