You're seeing this as a caller ID on inbound calls?  I've found that  
the proliferation of previous area codes into exchanges has led to  
some strange, mangled caller IDs that actually work if you press  
"redial", but they get a person who has NO idea what you're calling  
about.  710 I'm sure is now an exchange in lots of places that is  
somehow turning into an area code on outbound presentation.

Or this could be yet-another ill-fated "private prefix" for VoIP  
dialing, like area code 747 for the Gizmo project, or (coincidentally)  
area code 700 for IAXTel.  I hate e.164.  :-)
