Area Code 948
(540 and 826) - (571 and 703) - (757 and 948)
Area Code 948 History:
Area code 948 was put into service as an all services overlay of area code 757. Ten digit dialing (area code + seven digit number) is necessary in the 757/948 overlay effective April 9, 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.
The Virginia State Corporation (SCC) had previously approved area code 948 as an all services overlay of area code 757 with an implementation date of October 24, 2022.
