Manhattan is set to get a new area code on June 10th: 332, this new area code is not going to replace any existing area code but will rather be an overlay to the 212 and 646 area codes which are exclusive to Manhattan. While 212 is mainly used for landlines and are no longer being distributed, 646 numbers are assigned for both landlines and cell phones.
How is this new are code affecting current residents? Not much, except that new residents and new lines being initiated will be assigned this new 332 area code.
Now, who wants this new area code? not many, it seems like most people will rather stick with their exclusive 212 area code or the less popular 646.
As noted in a recent article on CNN: The 212 area code is something of a status symbol. It was one of the original 86 codes created in 1947, and the first in New York City. As residents told New York Times in 2015, “the only acceptable area code for a Manhattanite is 212.”
So now is the time to get a 212 area code phone number before you get ‘stuck’ with a 332 (3rd tier) area code.
In short: Yes, you can port any 212 number purchased form us to Google Voice.
If you’ve given Google Voice a shot in the past, you may have held off on switching over entirely due to the inability to port your mobile phone number. People get attached to their phone numbers – it’s simply human nature. This phenomenon is especially likely if you’ve invested money in a snappy 212 phone number. After finally securing a number with a cool area code, the last thing that you want to do is hand out an awkward Google Voice number – right? Thankfully, it looks like Google is finally opening the floodgates and allowing number porting.
