The New Second Area Code for Central Florida Will Be...

407s will keep their 407s. Only new customers will be given the 689s... eventually.


The new area code for new phone customers in Orange, Osceola, Seminole, and parts of Lake and Volusia counties will be 689 within about 10 months. Current 407 customers will retain that area code. New numbers will receive this area code once the 407 numbers are used up. The new code was supposed to be introduced in 2002 but because of an "aggressive push for number conservation plans," it wasn't. Readers can find more details about how area codes work HERE.
