CLARK COUNTY'S NEW AREA CODE – In November 2012, the Public Utilities Commission (PUC) of Nevada approved a second area code to be added in Clark County. This new "725" area code will be an "overlay" on the current "702" area code. This means that both area codes will cover the same area. As a result of this new area code, the new dialing procedure will require callers to dial the 3-digit are code plus the 7-digit telephone number. This means that ALL calls that are currently dialed with seven digits will need to be dialed using ten digits (area code + telephone number). All Clark County telephone calls (cell or landline) will require 10-digit dialing (area code + phone number) beginning on Saturday, May 3rd, 2014. INFO FROM THE PUC
