Area Code 757
The North American telephone area code 757 is a NANPA telephone area code covering the southeast corner of Virginia. It was established July 1, 1996, as a split from area code 804.
The region within its service area includes the following:
- The vast majority of the Hampton Roads metropolitan area, encompassing:
- The Virginia Peninsula, including Newport News, Hampton, and Williamsburg, and
- South Hampton Roads, including Virginia Beach, Norfolk, Chesapeake, Portsmouth, Franklin, and Suffolk.
- The Eastern Shore of Virginia, the Virginia portion of the Delmarva Peninsula.
Before the implementation of number pooling, 757 was projected to run out of numbers as early as 2002. A plan was developed that would have allowed a concentrated overlay in the Hampton Roads metro area leaving all of the Eastern Shore in 757. This would have made ten-digit dialing mandatory in southeastern Virginia. However, this plan was never implemented and the area code is not projected to reach full capacity until the middle of 2023. As a result, 757 is one of the few urbanized area codes where seven-digit dialing is still possible.
