Area Code 256


(c) Copyright 2010 ReversePhoneCheckc.com. All Rights Reserved

Area code 256 was created on 23rd March 1998 for accommodating the exhausting demands for telephone lines in area code 205. The particular code serves one of the East South Central States of United States - the State of Alabama. North and Northeast areas of the Alabama State are mainly served by the code 256. Metropolitan areas covered by the 256 code are:

  • The Shoals
  • Huntsville
  • Decatur
  • Gadsden
  • Anniston-Oxford

It has been planned to introduce area code 938 as an overlay to area 256 in case if it gets exhausted because of the ever-increasing demands for telephone connections. Ten-digit dialing would also be implemented as soon as the code 938 gets activated. However, it is predicted that particular overlay area would be activated in 2011.

Areas are divided into further smaller portions and are assigned with new and unique codes. Areas are always assigned with new and unique codes - this is just impossible for two regions having same area code. Assigning unique codes to different areas eliminates even a single of phone number repetition.

There are total five area codes which are serving the state is Alabama.

  • Area Code 205 (created in 1947)
  • Area Code 251 (created in 2001 )
  • Area Code 256 (created in 1998)
  • Area Code 344 (created in 1995)

  • West: 662, 205
