Area Code 786 History:
Area code 786 was officially put into service. Area code 786 is an overlay of area code 305 covering Miami-Dade County.
In 1998 the Miami-Dade portion of area 305 was overlaid with area code 786. In 2001 seven or permissive ten digit dialing within Monroe County, which comprises the Florida Keys, was established. Effective June 1, 2015 area code 786 was expanded to include all of the Florida Keys in Monroe County. Ten digit dialing became mandatory in Monroe County effective April 18, 2015
Area code 645 was put into service as an all services overlay of area codes 305 and 786. Ten digit dialing (area code + seven digit number) is necessary in the 305/645/786 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 786 also serves some exchanges in the city of Miramar in Broward County, however, most of Broward County is served by area code 954.
