Area Code 443 History:
Area code 443 was put into service. Area code 443 is an overlay of area code 410.
Area code 667 is proposed as an overlay of area codes 443 and 410. The scheduled implementation date is 03/24/2012 and mandatory 10 digit dialing will be required.
Ten digit dialing (area code + seven digit number) is necessary in the 410/443/667 overlay 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.

Anne Arundel County, Baltimore County, Baltimore City County, Calvert County, Caroline County, Carroll County, Cecil County, Dorchester County, Harford County, Howard County, Kent County, Queen Annes County, Somerset County, Talbot County, Wicomico County, and Worcester County.
