North Carolina (472) Area Code Overlay

To ensure a continuing supply of telephone numbers, the new 472 area code will be added to the area served by the 910 number. This is known as an area code overlay.

You do not need to change your existing area code or telephone number.

New 472 Area Code Overlay
  • An overlay is the addition of another area code (472) to the same geographic region as existing area code (910). The overlay does not require you to change your existing area code or phone number, or how you dial your calls.
  • Starting October 7, 2022, new telephone lines or services may be assigned numbers using the new 472 area code. All calls made within and between area codes 910 will be required to dial the area code and phone number for all local calls, just as customers with telephone numbers from the 910area code do today.

What Will Not Change
  • Your telephone number, including current area code.
  • The price of a call, coverage area, or other rates and services.
  • Whatever is considered a local call now will still be a local call.
  • Continue to dial 1 + area code + telephone number (eleven digits) for calls to area codes other than 472 and 910.
  • In an emergency simply dial 911.
  • If 211, 311, 411, 511, 611, 711 or 811 services are currently available in your community, no extra digits are needed.
