Technical info on US phone numbers

  • U.S. phone numbers are based on the North American Numbering Plan (NANP), which is a system used to route telephone calls within the United States, Canada, and other participating countries and territories. The NANP is an integrated numbering system that allows for direct dialing of long-distance calls within the region.
  • A typical U.S. phone number consists of 10 digits, formatted as follows: (NXX) NXX-XXXX
  • Area code (NXX):
  • The first three digits represent the area code, which is assigned to a specific geographic region within the country. The area code helps to route calls within the public switched telephone network (PSTN) to the correct local exchange carrier (LEC) serving the region.
  • The first digit (N) can be any digit from 2 to 9
  • The second and third digits (X) can be any digit from 0 to 9
  • Central office (exchange) code (NXX):
  • The next three digits represent the central office code or exchange code, which corresponds to a particular local telephone exchange within the area code's region. The exchange code helps further route the call to the appropriate local telephone exchange.
  • The first digit (N) can be any digit from 2 to 9
  • The second and third digits (X) can be any digit from 0 to 9
  • Line number (XXXX):
  • The last four digits represent the subscriber's unique line number within the telephone exchange. This is the specific telephone number assigned to a customer.
  • Each of the four digits (X) can be any digit from 0 to 9
  • In addition to the 10-digit format, U.S. phone numbers can be dialed with a prefix of "1" for long-distance and international calls. This "1" is referred to as the trunk prefix or country code for the NANP countries, though it is not necessary when dialing a local number within the same area code.
  • The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) regulates the assignment and use of phone numbers in the U.S. while the North American Numbering Plan Administration (NANPA) oversees the administration of the NANP.
