Area Code 902 History:
Area code 902 was put into service.
Area code 902 was split to form area code 506.
Area code 782 has been approved by the Canadian Radio-television
and Telecommunications Commission, as an all overlay of area code 902, with an implementation date of November 30, 2014.
Ten digit dialing (area code + seven digit number) will be necessary in the 902/782 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.
