As you are likely aware, 10-digit dialing will soon be mandatory in Manitoba. Starting Sunday, July 29, all local calls in the province must be dialed using the area code 204 followed by the seven-digit phone number. If you do not dial the area code, your call will be intercepted by a network announcement reminding you that you need to dial ten digits. Your call, however, will still be completed. As of October 20, 2012, if you do not dial the area code, your call will not be completed. It is important that all Manitobans get used to dialing ten digits now.
MTS has created a 10 digit dialing support page for those who need more information or assistance.
