Area Code 706 Information

Area Code 706 Map State: GA - Georgia
Active: True

In the NANP, area code 706 covers all of northern Georgia outside of metro Atlanta. Until 1992 it was within area code 404, which was retained by the metro area. This area code is split into two disconnected sections. The small section is west-central Georgia, in the region around Columbus. This is bordered by area code 334 to the west in Alabama, area code 478 to the east, area code 229 to the south, and metro Atlanta's 404, 678, 770, and future 470. It does not touch the landline area of 404, only the cellphone area. The major section of 706 wraps around from Rome in northwest Georgia, east through the mountains past Dahlonega, meeting its narrowest point at Toccoa, then broadening south to Athens and Augusta. It touches Alabama's area code 256 on the far west, Tennessee's area code 423 on the northwest, North Carolina's area code 828 and Upstate South Carolina's area code 864 to the north-northeast, and midlands area code 803 to the east, and middle Georgia's 478 and metro Atlanta
