Suncom numbers no longer active
Effective April 1, SUNCOM numbers became inactive. Callers who were using SUNCOM to call UF by dialing 622-XXXX will now need to dial the regular ten-digit number (352) 392-XXXX. Similarly, when calling out to former SUNCOM numbers, you will now need to use the location’s normal 10-digit phone number.
- For all long distance calls: dial 9 + 1 + Area Code + number.
- Discontinue using SUNCOM prefixes for Florida agencies. (UF SUNCOM prefixes were 602, 622, 623 and 626.)
- Remove 7-digit SUNCOM numbers from published material (business cards, letterhead, web sites, etc).
Questions? Contact Suzanne Leahy at (352) 392-2061.
