Area Code 757
(571 and 703) and (757 and 948)
Area Code 757 History:
Area code 757 was officially put into service. Area code 757 was created from a split of area code 804.
Area code 948 was put into service as an all services overlay of area code 757 on May 9, 2022. Effective April 9, 2022 ten digit dialing (area code + seven digit number) became necessary in the 757/948 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.
Area code 948 had been previously approved as an all services overlay of area code 757 with an implementation date of October 24, 2022. Prior to the revision ten digit dialing (area code + seven digit number) would have been necessary in the 757/948 overlay effective September 24, 2022.
