Area code 843
Area code 843 is the area code for the eastern third of South Carolina. It entered service on March 22, 1998 as a split from 803 and It serves the Grand Strand, the Lowcountry, the Pee Dee, and the Sandhills. Major cities in the region include Myrtle Beach, Charleston, Beaufort, Hilton Head Island and Florence.
Under current projections, 843 will run out of numbers in 2015, by which time an additional split or an overlay will likely be necessary. In addition to the rapid growth of the Grand Strand, Charleston and Beaufort/Hilton Head areas, most of the southern portion of the area code is part of the Savannah, Georgia LATA, meaning several numbers in Savannah's area code 912 aren't available for use.
