History

Area code 912 was split from Albany.

This region of Georgia is not as densely populated as the north, despite the presence of Savannah and Macon. As a result, 912 remained unchanged for 46 years. By the start of the 21st century, an impending number shortage meant that the entire southern half of the state could no longer stay in 912. In addition to the proliferation of cell phones and pagers, portions of the 912 territory were in LATAs that extended into Florida and South Carolina, further limiting the supply of numbers. On August 1, 2000, area code 912 was reduced to its current size in a three-way split, with Savannah and the eastern portion retaining 912. The western portion (centered on Albany) became area code 229, while the northern portion (centered on Macon) became area code 478. Permissive dialing continued throughout the old 912 territory until August 1, 2001.
