Generic Problems About the Project[edit]

The titles should be changed to reflect the USA nature of the articles, as in US Area codes 617 and 857. As it is, it's impossible to tell from which area they are. Too specific to a country, not looking like an international encyclopedia. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 186.52.53.165 (talk) 14:27, 10 December 2011 (UTC)

Zip Code Errors[edit]

A lot of the zip codes in the chart are wrong. Specifically, those beginning with 021-- were changed a few years ago to 024--, although some 021-- zip codes remain. I will look into this to see if I can find a "source-able" better list: if anyone has a source, please share! -ReuvenkT C 07:31, 5 October 2007 (UTC)

Cell Phone Exchanges[edit]

Many exchanges which are listed in the article as Not used are actually cell phone exchanges. For instance, my cell number starts 617-230-xxxx, and it was originally a T-Mobile number. I'll try to start sourcing these, but feel free to help out. Friejose 13:59, 11 October 2007 (UTC)
