The red numbering plan area has area code 775; the blue area has area code 702/725, also in Nevada. All other area codes are in other states.

Area code 775 is a Nevada telephone area code in the North American Numbering Plan. It was split from area code 702 on December 12, 1998, and covers the entire state except for Clark County (Las Vegas) which retained area code 702 after the split. Major cities in this area code include Reno, Carson City and Elko. While it appears to be rural, more than 80 percent of its numbers are located in Reno and Carson City.

Prior to the creation of 775, area code 702 had served all of Nevada for 51 years. The state's dramatic growth in the second half of the 20th century, and the corresponding growth in telephone service, would have made a second area code a must in any event. However, the proliferation of cell phones, pagers, and fax machines, particularly in Reno and Carson City, hastened the need for the expansion of Nevada's number pool.

Despite Reno and Carson City's rapid growth, 775 is nowhere near exhaustion, and northern Nevada is not projected to need another area code in the foreseeable future. The latest NANPA projections did not list an exhaust date for 775.[1]
