Canton, OH utilizes an area code overlay in which area codes 234 and 330 serve the same geographic area. The area code overlay was established in 2000 at which time area code 234 was created as an overlay of area code 330. Area Code 330 was created as a split of area code 216 in 1996. Ten digit dialing (area code + seven digit number) is necessary because two different homes in the same geographic area can have the same seven digit phone number but each would have a different area code.
