Since area code 508 has stopped working since 2001 and was replaced with area code 774. It is highly unlikely that you would receive a call with the area code 508. However, if you do receive such a call, it is recommended that you do not answer that and block the number as it is probably a scammer using software to mask their original area code with a fake one. Being vigilant with unknown numbers and callers is the best way to deal with suspicious area codes and keep your information safe. And it is important to never share any personal information like your address, social security number, bank account number, etc. with any unknown caller.

The key benefits of choosing a local phone number when starting a business

1.Local numbers make your customers feel more connected to you. Clients often prefer to deal with businesses in their own locale. An 800 number may make your business seem too impersonal or large. Customers can have the convenience of making a call to a local number as opposed to an 800 number or an unrecognizable area code.

2.More than one number. Depending on your business size and needs, you may need more than one local number. For example if you run a business out of Massachusetts that is partially in Boston and partially in Western Massachusetts, you may want both a 617 and a 508 number for your customers. If you’re doing business in multiple cities across the country, having more than one local number is a good idea too to give your business a multi-city appeal.

3.Same great features! If you have a local number you would like to keep, EasyLine can easily port it. And with a local number comes all of the same great features like extensions and custom greetings.
