706 Area Code Officially Used Up

November 14, 2013

North Georgia telephone and cell phone users will begin to see more and more 762 area codes come up on their respective caller ID.

The 762 area code has been around since 2006, but will now be more widely used; due to the old tried and true 706 area officially being exhausted, that according to the North American Number Planning Association (NANPA).

NANPA administers telephone numbers in the United States, its territories, and Canada.

Those wondering if their current phone number will change have no need to worry as NANPA says that no current numbers will change, and that this is just for new numbers issued in the future.
