Area Code 984 History:
Area code 984 was put into service. Area code 984 is an overlay of area code 919. Mandatory 10 digit dialing is required.
Ten digit dialing (area code + seven digit number) is necessary in the 919/984 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.
Counties in North Carolina within area code 984 include:
Alamance County, Chatham County, Duplin County, Durham County, Franklin County, Granville County, Harnett County, Johnston County, Lee County, Orange County, Wake County, Wayne County, and Wilson County.
