Area code structure: N-X-Y N is not 0 or 1 X is not 9 X ≠ Y 10: Mobile phones use geographic area codes. However, there are exchange codes used for only mobile devices. Also, some overlay area codes are only used on mobile devices, or special internet phone systems other than most VoIP systems (e.g.: Google Voice, eFax, eVoice).
The 916 area code in northern California included Eureka and the north coast, but not Sacramento. It is the only one of the original codes that now includes none of its original territory. Florida had only one area code in 1947; as of 2010, it has seventeen.
A permissive dialing period for using either area code 212 or 718 in the affected area lasted until May 16, 1993. On October 1, 1999, area code 347 was added as an overlay code to area code 718. On December 16, 2009, the New York Public Service Commission approved an additional overlay code for the 718/347 numbering plan area.
It is an overlay code to all numbering plan areas (NPAs) in the city, and was intended to serve cellular, pager, and voicemail applications in the city, a restriction that was subsequently ruled impermissible by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) while grandfathering that use in New York City.
California is the state with the most area codes at 34 followed by Texas (27), New York (19), Florida (17), and Illinois (13). 12 US states only have a single area code. While no area codes in the US cross state boundaries, 3 area codes in Canada cross province boundaries.
