New Jersey Area Codes Pieces Of Information

New Jersey is a state in the Northeastern and mid-Atlantic regions of the United States. It is bordered on the north and east by New York, on the southeast and south by the Atlantic Ocean, on the west by Pennsylvania, and on the southwest by Delaware. New Jersey is the fourth-smallest state but the 11th-most populous and the most densely populated of the 50 United States. New Jersey lies entirely within the combined statistical areas of New York City and Philadelphia. It is also sometimes considered to be a part of Greater New York or the Tri-State Area.

The following is a list of Area Codes in the state of New Jersey:

  • 201: Bergen, Hudson, Essex, Passaic Counties
  • 609: Mercer, Burlington, Camden, Gloucester, Salem Counties
  • 732: Monmouth, Ocean Counties
  • 856: Cumberland, Cape May, Atlantic Counties
  • 908: Union, Somerset, Morris, Hunterdon Counties
  • 973: Sussex, Warren Counties

To call someone in New Jersey, you would use one of these area codes. If you are looking for a specific area code, you can find it here.

The 516/646/718/917 area codes are also used in parts of New Jersey (these are the New York metropolitan area codes). The 267/484/610/835 area codes are also used in parts of New Jersey (these are the eastern Pennsylvania area codes).

You may be wondering why there are so many different area codes for New Jersey. The reason is that each area code serves a specific geographic region. The first three digits of the phone number determine the location of the phone number.

The most common area code in New Jersey is 201, which is located in the northern part of the state. 609 is located in the southern part of the state, and 732 is located in the central part of the state. 856 is located in the southwestern part of the state, and 908 is located in the northwestern part of the state.

To call in New Jersey from another state you must first dial 1 + the area code + the 7-digit telephone number. So if you were trying to reach someone at The Star-Ledger in Newark your number would be 1-973-392-4182.

To call a New Jersey number from within the state, simply dial the 7-digit phone number. For example, to reach the same newspaper in Newark you would just dial 392-4182.

There are some exceptions to this rule. If you are calling a cell phone or VoIP phone, you must dial 1 + the area code + the 7-digit telephone number, even if you are calling from within New Jersey.

You must dial 1 before the area code when calling from another state. If you know the area code, you can dial 1 + the area code + the 7-digit phone number. For example, if you wanted to call the White House in Washington D.C., you would dial 1-202-456-1111.
