We thought we would see if we could solve a problem when we looked at the geography code for Dallas, TX. We were forced to give it a shot when a reader asked us to find a phone number for a company in this area code. We thought we were going to not only find an answer to that question, but also solve a harder riddle. How can a company have a number that appears to end in a 662 area code, but no dialer can map it?

Telephone area code serving the northern half of Mississippi, US (Source: en.wikipedia.org)

Area code 662 is the telephone area code serving the northern half of Mississippi, including the six counties (Benton, Coahoma, Desoto, Marshall, Tate and Tunica) that are part of the Memphis metro area. It also includes the cities which are home to the state's two largest universities, Oxford (University of Mississippi or "Ole Miss") and Starkville (Mississippi State University).

It was created in 1999 in a split from area code 601. The split came in part because the Memphis LATA extends some distance into northern Mississippi, meaning a large block of numbers in Memphis' area code 901 are unavailable for use. (Source: en.wikipedia.org)

Prior to October 2021, area code 662 had telephone numbers assigned for the central office code 988. In 2020, 988 was designated nationwide as a dialing code for the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline, which created a conflict for exchanges that permit seven-digit dialing. This area code was therefore scheduled to transition to ten-digit dialing by October 24, 2021. (Source: en.wikipedia.org)
