New Hampshire Area Codes and Their Locations
New Hampshire is a small state with just one area code that was one of the original 86 codes introduced in 1947. The state has not required another area code because the small population has not exhausted the current area code. Identifying New Hampshire’s area code will save residents from scam callers who are outside the state but claim to be calling from New Hampshire. New Hampshire residents can identify unknown callers, whether they are out of state or fellow residents, by running their numbers through reverse phone lookup searches.
The area code serving the state of New Hampshire is:

Who Controls New Hampshire Area Codes?
