The New 472 Area Code is Coming to the North Carolina 910 Area Code Region
To ensure a continuing supply of new telephone numbers, the North Carolina Utilities Commission has approved an all-services area code overlay for the 910 area code region, which serves southeastern North Carolina including the cities of Fayetteville, Jacksonville, Lumberton, Wilmington, and the military installation of Fort Bragg, within the counties of Cumberland, Onslow, Robeson, and New Hanover. The new 472 area code will serve the same geographic area currently served by the existing 910 area code.
What is an Area Code Overlay?
An overlay is the addition of another area code (472) to the same geographic region as an existing area code (910). The overlay does not require you to change your existing area code or phone number, or how you dial your calls. You will continue to dial the area code and phone number for all local calls, as you do today, within and between the 910 and new 472 area code.
Who will be affected and when does the new 472 area code become effective?
Beginning October 7, 2022, customers in the 910 area code overlay region may be assigned a number in the new 472 area code when they request new service or an additional line. If you are an existing customer that has a 910 area code, your area code will not change. Customers receiving a 472 area code will be required to dial the area code and phone number for all local calls, just as customers with telephone numbers from the 910 area code do today.
