Area code 205

Region covered by area code 205 in Alabama.

205 is the North American telephone area code for western and central Alabama, including the cities of Birmingham and Tuscaloosa.

It was created in 1947 as the sole area code in Alabama. In 1995, the southern half of the state was split off as area code 334. It was reduced to its current size in 1998, when the northern and eastern portions became area code 256.[1]

Area code 659 is scheduled to provide numbering relief for the 205 area but no implementation date has been announced.
