The history of the 832 area code
History of the 832
As the United States’ fourth-largest city, you can imagine that Houston has more than one area code. And, that’s where the history of the 832 area code begins. As part of the 1947 North American Number Plan, the 713 area code was created to cover the entire southeastern part of Texas, including Houston. And, it was split and overlaid twice before by the time they had to introduce the 832 area code in 1999. While the 713 area code remained as the most well-known area code in Houston, Texas, today it’s mostly used for landlines, with just over a quarter of its numbers being used for wireless numbers. That’s quite the opposite for the 832 number, which covers 14% of the city of Houston and is used mostly for wireless numbers in the area. And, covering 14% of the city of Houston means that the 832 are code currently serves nearly 300,000 people in the area, plus numerous in the surrounding cities such as Pasadena, Pearland, Sugar Land, and The Woodlands. In total, the 832 area code joins area codes 713, 346, and 281 as one of Houston’s four area codes serving some of Texas’ most populated counties.
