Boston Area Codes

The 617 Area Code was initially used throughout central and eastern Massachusetts. In time, additional Area Codes were required to meet an ever-growing demand for more phone numbers. Once the new prefixes were introduced, 617 was assigned specifically to Boston.

By 2001 a second Area Code was needed for Bostonians, and 857 was selected. Today, Boston and the surrounding areas utilize several different Area Codes. You can see and click on a complete list of them below.
