Area code 915
North American area code 915 is a state of Texas telephone area code for numbers in the El Paso area. It is one of the original area codes established in October 1947. Originally, it covered virtually the entire state north of Austin and west of Fort Worth, and stretched from the Oklahoma border all the way to the Mexican border.
This once-vast area code has been split three times. In 1954, nearly the entire eastern portion (Lubbock and the South Plains) was combined with part of area code 214 in a flash cut as area code 817. In 1957, most of the northeastern portion (the Texas Panhandle) was merged with a small portion of 817 to form area code 806. It was reduced to its current size on April 5, 2003 in a three-way split. The eastern portion of the old 915 territory, (Abilene and San Angelo) became 325, while the central portion (the Permian Basin) became 432.
