Area code 218


Area code 218

Area code 218 is one of the two original telephone numbering plan codes for Minnesota, though it has been modified since inception. By area, the region is the largest area code in the state, covering roughly the northern half and including cities such as Duluth, Hibbing, Brainerd, Bemidji, and Moorhead.

According to a 1947 map of the North American Numbering Plan (NANP), the region was originally "r"-shaped and covered about two-thirds of the state. Area code 612 covered the remaining southeastern portion of the state. The shape was modified to roughly coincide with its current shape in 1954 when area code 507 was created to stretch across the southern fifth of Minnesota.

The region was unaffected in 1996 when the 612 area was subdivided. Today, area code 320 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 covers Minneapolis proper and a few nearby suburbs.
