Area Code 804 History:

Area code 804 was officially put into service. Area code 804 was created from a split of area code 703. In 1996 area code 804 was split to form area code 757. In 2001 area code 804 was split to form area code 434.

Area code 686 was put into service as an all services overlay of area code 804. Ten digit dialing (area code + seven digit number) is necessary in the 686/804 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.
