Now you know the various local area codes of Texas and the regions that they serve. But, do you know why these area codes are required in a Texas telephone number. Every country, including the United States of America has a stipulated number of digits in its phone number. 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. So, a Texas phone number would look like this:
For any business, a local presence is incomplete without a local phone number. If you have a business in Texas or are in the works of opening one, you need a business phone number with Texas area code.
A local phone number makes it easy for the business to reach out customers in the region. Also, from the customers’ point of view, it is easy to dial a local phone number for support and inquiries than an international number. That makes it imperative for your business to have a business phone number with Texas area code.
