    The history behind Puerto Rican phone numbers

    The history of Puerto Rico phone numbers can be traced back to the early 1900s when the first telephone exchange was established in San Juan. At that time, telephone numbers were composed of three digits, and the exchanges were manually operated by switchboard operators.

    In the 1930s, Puerto Rico adopted the North American Numbering Plan (NANP), which standardized the format of phone numbers across North America. This plan assigned a three-digit area code to each region and a seven-digit local number to each phone line. Puerto Rico was assigned the area code 787.

    In 1996, Puerto Rico's area code was split, and a new area code, 939, was assigned to the island. The split was necessary due to the increasing demand for phone numbers as the population of Puerto Rico grew.

    In 2019, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) approved a proposal to establish an additional area code, 939, in Puerto Rico.

    Technical info on P.R. phone numbers

    Phone numbers in Puerto Rico are formatted in a 3-3-4 digit pattern, with the first three digits indicating the area code and the next seven digits representing the local phone number. The area codes in Puerto Rico include 787 and 939, and they cover the entire island.

    When dialing a Puerto Rican phone number from outside of the country, the international dialing code is +1, followed by the area code and phone number. It is important to note that Puerto Rico is a US territory, so it uses the same phone system as the mainland United States. This means that calls between Puerto Rico and the US are considered domestic and do not incur international charges.
