Area code 260 is a North American Numbering Plan area code for northeast Indiana. Cities served include Angola, Auburn, Bluffton, Columbia City, Decatur, Fort Wayne, Huntington, New Haven, and Wabash.

History[edit]

Eventual depletion of numbers in area code 219 in the late 1990s prompted a three-way split of 219. As the result of a random drawing, northwest Indiana retained 219, 574 was assigned to north-central Indiana (including South Bend), and northeast Indiana received 260. The split was on January 15, 2002, with mandatory dialing effective five months later.[1]
