North Carolina Area Codes

In the North American Numbering Plan, 828 is the telephone area code for most of the western third of the U.S. state of North Carolina. It includes all of the Blue Ridge Mountains, as well as most of the Foothills. The largest city in the 828 territory is Asheville. The city of Hickory is often grouped with the Charlotte metropolitan area, but uses 828 rather than Charlotte's 704 and 980.

828 was split from 704 in 1998 to free up numbers because of the popularity of pagers and cell phones.
