Nevada Area Code Information
(702 and 725)
Nevada is currently using three area codes. Nevada has had one area code split and utilizes one area code overlay plan with area code 725 as an overlay of area code 702.
Area code 702 originally covered all of Nevada when it was established in 1947. It was not until 1998 that Nevada experienced sufficient growth in population and telephone use to need an additional area code. It was at that time that area code 702 was split to form area code 775.
Today area code 501 covers all of Las Vegas and Clark County as well as Boulder City. Area code 775 covers the remainder of Nevada except Clark County and the Las Vegas Valley area.
