I don't know if the 10-digit phone numbers is a Verizon thing or not - although it's interesting that you didn't have to do that until you switched. Ever since we moved to Maryland - we've had to do that - it was a shock to the system back then - but I guess I sort of assumed that the days of not dialing the area code were over. Perhaps that only applies to overly populous areas like down here. But - now that you've highlighted the change - I realize that we've had Verizon phone service from day 1 in Maryland. I need to poll some people without Verizon and see if they have to dial the area code. I know that at work I still have to use the area code - even for local numbers.
My progression was from a standard Verizon land-line, to Comcast "Digital Voice" (VoIP) and now Verizon's FiOS VoIP. Up until now, I haven't had to dial ten digits for local or regional long distance. Now, the 717 area code is pretty pervasive here (at least in about a 50 mile radius), so that might be part of it. But seeing as how Comcast could somehow manipulate their VoIP service to work just like a standard landline, I can't see why Verizon couldn't do the same.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
