229 is the North American telephone area code for the southwest quadrant of the U.S. state of Georgia. It covers Albany, Valdosta, Bainbridge, Americus, Fitzgerald, Cairo, Moultrie, Thomasville and Tifton.

It was created in 2001 as part of a three-way split of area code 912, which had served the southern half of Georgia for 46 years. Savannah and the eastern portion stayed in 912, while Macon and the northern portion became area code 478.
