Does Los Angeles Still Have Seven-Digit Dialing?

IT'S A DUMB QUESTION, but I don't know the answer. I have a cell phone. No land line. I have to enter all ten digits.

I see storefronts posting signs - new signs, even - that don't list the area code. Seems silly to make people guess. Unless the area code is obvious to everyone but me.

Hm, I can't speak for all the area codes, but I live and work in the 323 and only have to enter the 7-digit number.

If you're calling a number within your area code, it's seven-digit dialing. Ten-digit for calls to numbers outside your area code.

the way I have always seen it is beyond Eagle Rock to east, its 626, Glendale is 818, past La Cienaga is 310, past Hoover and/or Beverly is somewhere around 213 (I haven't been that way in some time). Everything else is pretty much 323.
