Area code 205

From Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Area code 205 is an area code for Alabama. It was one of the first area codes created in 1947. It initially covered the entire state, but after it was split by 334 (first area code to not have a 0 and 1 as the middle digit) in 1995 and 256 in 1998, it now covers the western and central part of the state, typically in the cities of Birmingham and Tuscaloosa. It was overlaid by area code 659 in 2019.
