North American area code 702 is a North American Numbering Plan telephone code serving Clark County, including Las Vegas. 702 was one of the original area codes established in October 1947; it originally covered all of Nevada. On 12 December 1998, most of Nevada, including Reno and Carson City, moved to area code 775. While Nevada's explosive growth in the second half of the 20th century would have made a new area code necessary in any event, the split was hastened by the proliferation of cell phones and pagers.

Since 3 May 2014, the 702 area code has been overlaid with the 725 area code, with 10-digit dialing required for all calls.[1]

Despite Las Vegas' rapid growth, 702/725 is nowhere near exhaustion; Las Vegas is not currently projected to need another area code until 2042.[2]
