Some background on Alabama and it’s area codes

Alabama initially received the area code 205 when the North American Numbering Plan was established in 1947, covering the entire state. As demand for telephone numbers grew due to population expansion and technological advancements such as fax machines and cell phones, additional area codes became necessary.

In 1995, Alabama introduced the 334 area code to serve the southeastern part of the state, including cities like Montgomery and Dothan. This split helped manage the burgeoning demand for new telephone lines and services, effectively distributing the load of numbering resources across the region.

The most recent area code added in Alabama is 938, introduced in 2010 as an overlay to the existing 256 region, which covers parts of Northern Alabama, including Huntsville and Decatur. Overlays allow multiple area codes to coexist within the same geographic region, addressing the continued need for additional telephone numbers without requiring renumbering.
