The 757 is growing, and getting a new area code as a result, and that means we’ll soon be dialing some extra digits to make local calls. But the change seems to be happening more slowly than previously thought.

We first got 757 in 1996 and have been steadily growing since then, and when the North American Numbering Plan Administrator assigned yet another new area code, it was thought the region would run out of phone numbers in late 2021. But new estimates push that deadline back to the second quarter of 2023 (found on page 6), giving us a a little more time to make the adjustment.

The most recent in-service date available at the NAMPA site for our new area code is now May 9, 2022.
