Although it’s hard to imagine now, New York City was served by only area code 212 until 1984. In 1984, the 718 area code was introduced to serve Brooklyn, Queens and Staten Island. Bronx and Marble Hill were removed from the 212 numbering plan and appended to 718 in 1992. New York City’s first cellular/pager area code, the 917, was introduced in the same year. All cellphone numbers issued until then were migrated to 917 area code.

In 1999, two new area codes, 646 and 347 were introduced to serve Manhattan and the rest of the boroughs respectively. The sixth one (929 area code) came into effect in 2011, generating over 23 million phone numbers. Finally, in 2015, the youngest area code, 332, was introduced.

New York currently has 19 area codes including 8 overlays. View the complete list of New York area codes.

How to make calls to 347 area code

There are 3 types of dialing under the NANP:
  • Seven-digit dialing (7-digit telephone number without area code)
  • Ten-digit dialing (3-digit area code + 7-digit telephone number)
  • Eleven-digit dialing or the national format (1-digit country code + 3-digit area code + 7-digit telephone number)

To make a call to a 347 area code phone number, you need to perform eleven-digit dialing (1 + 347 + 7-digit telephone number). If you are making the call from a phone number with the same area code, you can perform ten-digit dialing (347 + 7-digit telephone number).

What do businesses need to keep in mind while using a 347 area code?

New York City is the most populous metropolitan area in the United States. It also has the largest regional economy in the country. Finding real estate in this city is a tall task for most new or small businesses. Except the good news is that, you need not be physically present in New York to own a telephone number with 347 area code. You can always set up your call center or phone team in any part of the world, and buy a virtual phone number with the area code of your choice. You should also keep in mind that the number of available telephone numbers are not infinite. Phone numbers under the 347/718/929 numbering plan are projected to get exhausted by 2028. So, if you are planning to get one for yourself, it’s never too early.
