Area Code 832 History:
Area code 832 was put into service. Area code 832 is an overlay of area codes 713 and 281.
Area code 346 has been approved by the Public Utilities Commission of Texas as an all services overlay of the existing area code overlay, consisting of area codes 832, 713 and 281, with an implementation date of July 1, 2014.
Ten digit dialing (area code + seven digit number) is already necessary in the 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.
