An overlay is the addition of another area code to the same geographic area as an existing area code. In Alabama, the 659 area code is being added to the area served by the 205 area code to ensure a continuing supply of phone numbers.
You won't have to change your existing area code or phone number. However, because more than one area code will now serve the same geographic area, it does require you to dial or enter the area code and the 7-digit number for all calls, including calls within the same area code.
