I started getting some weird phone calls and text messages on my old 917 number. After a week of trying to tell people that “Kenny” or, even better, “Baby Kenny” wasn’t at this number, I decided to look at my options. I remembered hearing about 212areacode.com and took a look at the site. I stumbled across a phone number that ended in triple 3s as did my then current sell phone number and decided that the extra cost was worth it to maintain a little semblance to prior number (and I think now this would probably qualify as an exclusive). I made the purchase and within 2 hours, AT&T had ported over my new number and I was texting and emailing everyone my new digits. Their first response, “How did you get a 212 number on your cell?” At first I let it be my little secret but then I let them in on the info of how to get that elusive area code. Even the woman at the AT&T store wanted to know how she could get one and I gave her all the details. It’s been a great conversation piece and finally after almost 12 years in NYC, I have a 212 number. I didn’t buy it…I earned it! 212areacode.com made it all possible.
