Rhode Island Area Code Pieces of Information

The Rhode Island Area Code is the telephone area code for the U.S. state of Rhode Island. The main area code, 401, covers the entire state except for Block Island. 801 and 339 are overlay codes covering the same geographic area as 401. The Rhode Island area code is a three-digit number that represents the geographic region of Rhode Island. The Rhode Island area code is split into two sections: 781 and 401. The 781 area code covers the northern part of the state, while the 401 area code covers the southern part. Each area code is assigned to a specific geographic region.

The Rhode Island area code is one of the original 86 area codes that were created in 1947. It is one of the few remaining single-state area codes in the United States. It is also one of only two area codes (along with Area Code 201 in New Jersey) that still has its original numbering plan area. The other 84 original area codes have all been split or overlayed at some point in their history. It originally covered the entire state of Rhode Island; however, as Rhode Island’s population increased and more telephone exchanges were established, additional area codes were subsequently added to provide relief to 401. The second Rhode Island Area Code, 801, was added in 1959 as an overlay to 401. The third Rhode Island Area Code, 339, was added in 2010 as an overlay to 401 and 801.

If you need to call someone in Rhode Island, you will need to use the Rhode Island Area Code followed by the seven-digit telephone number. When making a long-distance call within the United States, you will need to use the 1 + area code + seven-digit telephone number. For calls made outside of the United States, you will need to use the 011 + country code + area code + seven-digit telephone number.
