Information on 317 Area Code Overlay


Area Code Overlay Approved for the Indiana 317 Area Code

To ensure a continuing supply of telephone numbers, the 463 area code was added in 2016 to the area served by 317. This is known as an area code overlay.

What is an area code overlay?

An overlay is the addition of another area code (463) to the same geographic region as an existing area code (317). An overlay does not require customers to change their existing area code.

 Who was affected?

The 317 area code generally covers the region of Indianapolis and most of its suburbs. The 463 area code serves the same geographic area currently served by the existing 317 area code.

 Dialing procedure?

To complete local calls, the dialing procedure requires callers to dial the 10-digit telephone number (area code + the 7-digit telephone number). This adheres to both 317 and 463 area codes.



Important safety and security equipment, such as medical alert devices, and alarm and security systems must be programmed to use 10-digit dialing. Many systems operate on 10-digit dialing by default but some older equipment may still use 7-digits. Please contact your medical alert or security provider if you don’t know whether your equipment needs to be reprogrammed to accommodate the upcoming change to 10-digit dialing.

Who may you contact with questions?

If you have any questions regarding information provided in this notice, please call NineStar Connect at 317-326-3131.

Voicemail Instructions



Using the Voicemail System

The voicemail system is menu driven. Listen to the prompts and then press the keys on your phone to select which option you would like.

Accessing Voicemail

To access voicemail from your phone dial *98.

The first time you access your voicemail box you will be asked to set up your mailbox, record your name, and record a personal greeting to be played to callers when leaving a message.

When accessing your mailbox for the first time, this must be done from your home phone. You will be asked for your PIN. On the initial access to your mailbox your PIN will be 123465. During the setup process you will be asked to enter a new PIN. This must be at least 4 digits in length and cannot be totally sequential such as 1234. Also, it cannot consist of part of your home phone number.

Once your mailbox has been setup and initialized you can access it from an external phone number. Dial 317-335-4020 to access the system from another number other than your home number.

When you have messages

When you have at least one new message you will have a broken dial tone when you pick up the phone to make a call. If your equipment is equipped with a visual indicator this also will be flashing to indicate you have a new message.

Use the following charts to help guide you through the system
