Area Code 870 History: 04/14/1997

Area code 870 was put into service. Area code 870 was created from a split of area code 501.

Area code 327 is proposed as an overlay of area code 870. The scheduled implementation date was scheduled for 05/18/2013, however, on 6/22/2012 the Arkansas Public Service Commission suspended the planned implementation date of area code 327. A new implementation date will be established in the future.

Ten digit dialing (area code + seven digit number) will be necessary in the 870/327 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.
