Area Code 826 History:

Not yet in service:

The Virginia State Corporation Commission (SCC) has approved area code 826 as an all services overlay of area code 540 with an implementation date of 06/14/2022. Ten digit dialing (area code + seven digit number) will be necessary in the 540/826 overlay effective May 14, 2022 because different homes in the same geographic area can have the same seven digit phone number but each would have a different area code.
