Colorado area code and other parts of a phone number

Colorado has four area codes. All phone numbers in Colorado have 11 digits, like in any other state or city in the United States. But, what do these numbers really mean? 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. The country code of USA is +1. It is unique for every country. 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. Bringing it all together, this is how Colorado’s phone number would look like.
