The North American Numbering Plan (NANP) is a telephone numbering plan whereby a specific geographic area is assigned a prefix. In this case, the 737 area code pertains to most of Travis County and includes such major cities as Austin, Bee Cave, Briarcliff, Creedmoor, and Jonestown.

In 1947, the southern part of the state of Texas was assigned the code 512 area. By the year 1992, the western part of the County was separated from area code 512 and established at area code 210. Finally, in 1999 area code 512 was reduced to its current size serving Austin and its suburbs. In 2013, to stave off exhaustion, the 737 area code was introduced as a complementary to 512.

If you are interested in getting a 737 area code to make local calls in the south part of the state of Texas, with VoIPstudio, you can get a number of your choice along with the services of our virtual PBX for business.
