Area code 662

Area code 662 is the telephone area code serving the northern half of Mississippi, including the five counties (Tunica, Tate, Desoto, Marshall and Benton) that are part of the Memphis metro area.

It was created in 1999 in a split from area code 601. The split came in part because the Memphis LATA extends some distance into northern Mississippi, meaning a large block of numbers in Memphis' area code 901 aren't available for use.
