Provo, UT utilizes an area code overlay in which area codes 801 and 385 serve the same geographic area. 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. The area code overlay was put into service in 2009 when area code 801 was overlaid with area code 385. Area code 801 was the original area codes assigned to cover all of Utah in 1947.
In addition to Provo, UT area codes 801 and 385 serve the Wasatch Front metropolitian area in north-central Utah including the larger communities of American Fork, Bountiful, Clearfield, Cottonwood Heights, Draper, Kaysville, Kearns, Layton, Magna, Midvale, Millcreek, Murray, Ogden, Orem, Pleasant Grove, Provo, Riverton, Roy, Salt Lake City, South Jordan, South Salt Lake, Spanish Fork, Springville, Taylorsville, West Jordan, and West Valley City in addition to many smaller communities within the service area.
