I changed my iphone area code from 201 to 772 recently. I thought I would be able to dial local 772 area numbers without adding that prefix but any time I've tried it I get the error message from Verizon. Other people I know can call from their cell phones without using the area code first. Is this a Verizon issue or something in the iphone settings? Thank you.

That's correct. Connecticut had 2 area codes until just a few years a go. When they added the new area code, all Connecticut numbers now have to be dialed with all 10 numbers. Even if I'm calling landline to landline to the house next door.
