Get Ready for A New Area Code in the 909 Which Will Be Here by Summer 2021

When you run out of 909 numbers, you get a new area code and here's the new code coming to the IE.

Remember back in 1992, when the "909" was born from the "714".  Then in 2004, when those who lived in the Riverside County areas got the "951" and escaped out of the "909"? 

Me too.

According to the San Bernardino Sun, it looks like we're out of 909 numbers and a new area code is on it's way. 

Please welcome to the stage... the 840.

The California Public Utilities Commission approved the new area code earlier in the month, which will help offset the limited "909" space left. 

If you currently have a "909" area code, that will not change. 

Joining the "909" will be portions of Eastvale and Calimesa, and in LA County, cities like Walnut, San Dimas and LaVerne. 

By summer 2021, we'll be out of "909" area codes and should see the new "840" take affect.
