Area code 907
At the time of its 1957 creation, area code 907 was one of the two longest area codes to dial on a rotary phone (taking 26 pulses to dial out in an era before the first touch tone phones). Hawaii's area code 808, introduced the same year, was also 26 pulses.
Many calls within the state are long-distance and must be dialed with the leading 1-907; local calls are seven digits. Area code 907 is the largest area code, in terms of land area served in the U.S., and is second only to Canadian area code 867 among codes in the North American Numbering Plan. Since the Aleutian Islands of Alaska cross longitude 180 (also known as the Anti-Meridian), 907 can be considered to be both the farthest west and the farthest east area code in the NANP.
Due to Alaska's low population, 907 is one of only 12 remaining area codes serving (almost) an entire state. It is not projected to be exhausted until 2029.
