Growth Triggers Need For New Area Code
Growth Triggers Need For New Area Code

AIR DATE: October 22, 2012

After decades of growth, Las Vegas has finally out-grown its original area code. The North America Numbering Plan Administration says its running out of phone number prefixes for carriers to give to new customers. That means the valley will be getting an addition to its 702 area code.

    It would be nice if they just gave the new area code numbers to only mobile phones and kept land lines as 702 numbers. That way you would know whether you were dialing a cell phone just by looking at the number itself.
