Colorado Area Codes Pieces Of Information

Colorado has three area codes: 303, 719, and 720. Area Code 970 is also assigned to Colorado, but it is not currently in use. The 303 area code is the oldest one in use in the state of Colorado. It was created on October 1st, 1947. The 970 area code was assigned to Colorado in 1996, but it has never been put into use. There were plans to assign 970 to Grand Junction, but they were canceled due to Number Pooling. Under Number Pooling, certain Area Codes are no longer used for geographic areas but are instead used to assign telephone numbers to cellular providers and other service providers.


As a result of Number Pooling, the 303, 719, and 720 Area Codes are now all being used in Colorado. Area Code 720 was created on November 20th, 2007.
The 303 area code covers the Denver metropolitan area. The 719 area code covers most of southern Colorado, including Pueblo, Colorado Springs, and Fountain. The 720 area code covers the northern suburbs of the Denver metropolitan area, including Boulder, Broomfield, Erie, and Longmont.


Area codes are telephone numbers that are assigned to specific geographical areas. In the United States, area codes are regulated by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). Area codes are necessary because there are not enough available phone numbers to assign one to every person or business. Without area codes, it would be difficult to determine where a call should be directed. Area Codes also help to reduce the number of unused telephone numbers. By dividing the United States into geographic areas, each with its own Area Code, the number of available telephone numbers is increased.

All of the digits in an Area Code must be dialed when calling within that Area Code. For long-distance calls within the United States, the Area Code and the seven-digit telephone number must be dialed. The three-digit Area Code is not required when calling from one area code to another within the United States.
