Area codes and local calling areas

This article provides information regarding local calling areas for AT&T California customers.

Note: Local calling areas are subject to change and are described in the applicable California Service Publications.

For California, local calling areas includes Zone Usage Measurement (ZUM) Zones 1, 2 (Local), and Zone 3.  Charges for ZUM Zone 3 calls may exceed Zones 1 and 2. The charge for calls in your local calling area depends on your particular plan. For Flat Rate Service, calls in Zones 1 and 2 are included in your monthly rate; calls to Zone 3 cost extra. For Measured Rate Service, calls are timed and chargeable in all three zones.

Calls made outside of your local calling area, but not far enough away to be billed as long distance, are called Local Toll calls. These calls are carried and billed by your Local Toll carrier of choice. Local Toll rates vary depending on the distance between the call locations and your Local Toll calling plan.
