This is a list of area codes in the state of Florida.

Background[edit]

When the first area code plan was introduced in 1947, the entire state was given the area code 305. In 1953, the area code 813 was introduced for the western coast of Florida, and 904 was introduced for northern Florida in 1965. In 1988, area code 407 was introduced for the Orlando area.

Many of these new area codes have been introduced in the last two decades, as a result of city expansion throughout Florida. There are currently seventeen area codes serving Florida.

An eighteenth area code, 689, may overlay Orlando and Kissimmee as soon as there is an indication that there will be a shortage of new numbers with the existing 407 and 321 area codes; As of 2011, an implementation date for 689 had been suspended.[1]
