About Us

AreaCodes.net offers a seamless way to search for and identify area codes. Area codes are used throughout North America and the Caribbean to identify the region a phone number is calling into, or out of. These three numbers allow people to quickly connect with the people they’re reaching out to, which is why area codes remain so essential to a functioning, national telephone system.

There are over 250 area codes in the United States alone, and that number continues to grow every year as populations shift and grow. We allow our users to find every area code associated with a state, province, and any other countries using NANPA. We also list all common service area codes.

How to use our site

Our site is easy to use! You can search our site using the area code or by searching the associated region. Our main page lists every area code we have on file. You can choose either the area code itself or the state it’s associated with to be directed to the associated area code or state or city page. For your convenience, our main page also has a complete list of non-geographic codes, N11 codes (service codes), and expansion codes.

Our Area Code Map page allows you to zoom in and out on all the countries that use NANPA and have area codes. You can zoom in to specific areas to find all area codes associated with that location. If you’re uncertain about the area code in your current location, our What’s My Area Code page can automatically detect your location and produce your area code for you (page must be granted permission to access your location).

Our Area Code Lookup page lets you search for either the prefix or region that you want identified. For example, if you want to know where the area code 205 is calling from, type it into our search bar and you will learn that someone in Alabama is currently trying to reach you.

Want to learn about area codes, their history, and how we use them? Check out our articles on the history of area codes and what is an area code. These articles will give you detailed explanations on where area codes originated, how they were originally used, and how they’ve evolved over time and continue to evolve.
