code

A small change in the 1990s brought the Northwest Angle into the 218 area code; that region had previously been part of Bell Canada's Clearwater Bay exchange in area code 807. (Source: en.wikipedia.org Because of the low population density in northern Minnesota, the region was unaffected when the 612 area was subdivided in 1996. The resulting area code 320, the former western portion of 612, runs the length of the southern border with 218, and the 612 area code has been reduced in size so much that it now just includes the city of Minneapolis and a few nearby suburbs. (Source:en.wikipedia.org))

Exhaust Projections by the NANP Administrator estimate that northern Minnesota will not need another area code until after 2050. (Source: en.wikipedia.org Despite the proliferation of cell phones, particularly in Duluth and Moorhead, area code 218 is nowhere near exhaustion. (Source:en.wikipedia.org))

Prior to October 2021, area code 218 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)

The "218" area code will be required when dialing local numbers in northern Minnesota beginning Oct. 24. (Source: www.pinejournal.com)
