Have you moved recently? Is your cell phone still loyal to your old area code? Do you feel the need to get a new number in your new area code? I ask because as many of you know I moved from my beloved New Jersey and the 732 area code to rural Georgia and the 770 area code in June of 2007. I staunchly refused to change my number when I arrived because I was a Jersey Girl. I'm still a Jersey Girl but I'm getting tired of the funny looks at the doctors office and other places when people ask for my cell number. I don't know why but I feel like by giving up that 732 cell# I am giving up a bit of myself and my rights to go home again.:redface: Yeah I know that's stupid but I like my cell number I've had it for like 5 years now. If I change I might get an ugly number. :frown1: I remember watching Men in Trees last year and the main character, played by Anne Heche, faced a similar decision and it totally resonated with me. Men in Trees - Episode: Get a Life Area Codes 917 and 646 Annie: Jack, no! A 646, maybe, but a 917? That's vintage, that's class, that's New York City. The original area code for land lines in New York City/Manhattan was 212. In the 90s, the 917 area code was overlaid in the same area, meaning new numbers, mostly cell phones, were given the 917 area code. In 1999, area code 646 was added. This is why Annie calls 917 vintage. If someone has a 917 area code, it is believed to be more elite because a person had a cell phone before the big wave of technology.
