Southwestern Bell officials announced that South Texas would soon have two area codes.  San Antonio and the Rio Grande Valley would remain 512 and Austin, Corpus Christi and Kingsville would receive a new but as yet undetermined designation.  The change is slated to take place in late 1992 or early 1993.
