Arizona area code and other parts of a phone number

Why does Arizona need an area code? Why does any region need an area code? Area codes are required to direct calls to that particular region from the country code. Phone numbers in the United States typically consist of 11 digits — the 1-digit country code, a 3-digit area code and a 7-digit telephone number. The 7-digit telephone number is further comprised of a 3-digit central office or exchange code and a 4-digit subscriber number. Each country will have its own unique country code. The country code of USA is +1. The central office code denotes the telephone exchange to which the phone number is mapped. The last four digits, the subscriber number, is unique to each telephone line in the area served by the associated central exchange.
