10-Digit Dialing

The FCC ordered that in 2021 all area codes with 7-digit dialing and a 988 prefix within that area code transition to 10-digit dialing to prevent problems when callers are trying to reach the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. All Alaskan wireless and landline users made this transition due to a 988 prefix in the 907 area code.

988 has now been designated as the new 3-digit dialing code that will route callers to the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. You can now call or text the Lifeline 24/7, where you will be provided free and confidential support for people in distress, prevention and crisis resources for you or your loved ones.
