On May 23, 2016 area code 743 was put into service as an overlay of area code 336. Effective 04/23/2016 ten digit dialing (area code + seven digit number) became necessary in the 336/743 overlay because different homes in the same geographic area can have the same seven digit phone number but each would have a different area code.
