Area Code 615 Running Out, New Area Code By 2013

Posted:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Middle Tennessee will no longer be home to just one area code in a couple of years.

By the summer of 2013, a new area code will be added, because the numbers using 615 are running out. 

By then, anyone who calls a number with a 615 area code will have to dial all ten numbers, every time.

The Tennessee Regulatory Authority said when the switch happens, residents who move to the region will be assigned a brand new area code, and they will also have to dial all ten digits. 

It's not known yet what that new area code will be.
