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. It is in the Mountain Time Zone.
This once-vast area code has been split three times as follows:
- 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.
- In 2003, it was reduced to its current size in a three-way split with the western portion retaining area code 915, the eastern portion (Abilene, San Angelo, etc.) becoming 325, and the central portion (the Permian Basin) becoming 432.
Towns and cities currently served by area code 915 include Anthony, Canutillo, Clint, Dell City, El Paso, Fabens, Fort Hancock, Horizon City, Salt Flat, San Elizario, Sierra Blanca, Socorro, Tornillo, and Van Horn.
