Nevada's area code history began with the assignment of 702, covering the entire state in 1947. The state received its second area code 775, in 1998 to accommodate northern Nevada's growing demand for telephone numbers. Despite subsequent area code changes and overlays, 702 and 775 continue to serve as the primary area codes, distinguishing between the southern and northern regions of the state.
