Teens getting their first phone lines in the Tampa Bay Area may have a different area code to learn. In addition to 813 and 727, Tampa will now have a 656 area code starting in February 2022. T-Mobile confirmed this in a recent press release.
This means two things. If you want to get an 813 area code, you might be running out of time. Also, when you go to dial a number in Tampa, you will have to specify the area code first. This applies whether you have an 813 number calling a 656 number or an 813 number.
