Area Code List — By Number


Now this is useful.

How many times have I received a phone call from an area code I can't place geographically?

If I could then I'd know who's calling most of the time.

I think I'm gonna print this one out.

Here's an potential application for the tech–enabled among you: make it so your cellphone shows the location (two letter state abbreviation is enough) above the area code when an incoming call comes in.

Get rich with it.

which will use the exchange to map the area code down to the county or town." — Waldo Jaquith

telcodata.us is very good; I highly recommend it too. If you are just looking for a quick answer, you may want to try WhereCall.com -- you can just start entering the phone number, and it will provide the location as you type it (e.g. after the first 3 digits, it shows the state, and then after the next 3 digits shows the city, without having to go to another webpage).
