I was pleased to see that 212areacode had just what I was looking for - a 212 number with a historically accurate exchange for a Manhattan neighborhood of personal significance to me. I purchased at what I considered a fair price the number, a process which was fairly seamless. I also found the porting process easy (I ported to Google Fi). My only criticism has to do with the handling of CNAM for the new number but that has nothing to do with 212areacode as far as I know and has more to do with problems on the telco provider side as well as fundamental problems inherent to CNAM.
Excellent service and superb support! Huge choice of great numbers at very affordable rates.
This is my go-to place for all 212 needs. Customer service is excellent and the acquisition process is effortless.
Buying the new number was a good experience. Porting the new number through Google Voice web site was a bit more challenging, but if you attempt to port the # while 212 help is live via Chat, you should get through the Google voice porting process with relative ease. Tip - Have a printout of the Porting directions 212 provides next to you when attempting the porting process. Success is in the details, and the details are in the directions! So keep the directions handy and you probably won't need to chat with 212's help, although help was a good experience.
David is incredibly efficient and professional, I’m delighted to be a customer. In my last purchase, a mistake was made — but his strong follow-up and commitment to handle the issue blew me away and locked in my customer loyalty. I’ll be doing all of my number purchasing through him going forward, plain and simple.
I was very happy with the service 212areacode had offered. I would recommend the service to others as well.
When I needed a 212 number for my dog walking company, no provider could give me a 212 number, which was frustrating.. Then a friend told me about 212areacode.com out at a bar so the second I got home I went online and purchased a number within 10 minutes.. It was really simple to have the number ported to my Verizon blackberry the next day and I was in business! Living in Manhattan, you expect a legit businesses operating in Manhattan to have a 212 number.. This is a great and easy way to avoid waiting for one from a service provider! I wouldn’t know about their customer service because it just worked.. no hassle ! Thanks guys!
I'm extremely happy with my purchase from 212areacode.com For many years I wanted to get a 212 area code number but because I live in the bronx it wasn't possible. Thanks to 212areacode I was able to get a really nice number. I highly recommended!
Our experience with 212 Area code was excellent. We use them to provide us with 212 codes when typical number ranges are not available. Jock – CEO Perseus Telecom
I have been thrilled with my new 212 cell phone #. David Day was very helpful before and after the sale and delivery. I admit it was a little leap of faith, disbelief, another carrier, etc. etc., but the transfer to my phone, then to a new phone, my carrier, Verizon, went with out a hitch, just as they said. I would not hesitate to recommend David Day and his services without reservation. Fred
To whom it may concern, I wanted to send a note to say thank for the great service your company has provided me. Yesterday I purchased a cell phone and my provider (like many) did not have a 212 area code available. My boyfriend told me that I am able actually buy a 212 # (who knew!) so I did my research and found your company on the internet. I chose your company because as I was looking through your website and it seemed reputable and was VERY informative. I called my provider (AT&T Wireless) to ask if something like this (porting a purchased 212 number) is possible, and they informed that it would work. I took a chance and purchased the number. The entire process was simple and so detailed in instruction. I called my providers' porting department (which you conveniently listed the number for) and I think it took less than 5 minutes for the whole transition! Amazing!! Thank you again! I will recommend you to anyone I come across in my situation.
I am very impressed with this website. Wonderful service, with many follow up calls to insure that everything went smoothly , highly recommended! Thanks David!
This weekend I had my recently-purchased 212 number ported over to my preferred cellular provider. It was a quick and painless 15-minute process made simple with the information sheet that you provided. I must say that I had a healthy skepticism going into this process, but your web site won me over with two things. One was all the media links, and the other was the reasonable pricing. I figured that at $45 for the personal, I could take the risk. Suffice it to say, I'm very pleased with 212areacode.com and will recommend it to others.
This was surprisingly easy and professional. I had questions on how the transfer worked and these guys got right back to me. Did this for my cell but thinking of changing all our hertaste.com numbers to 212. Thanks again, Rob Founder & CEO of HerTaste, Inc.
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.
Excellent service I bought the business phone number and within 2 days I got the email with the number and the procedure to follow to port over 212 number I called in my case AT&T and it only took less then 5 minutes and I successfully transferred my number to 212 area code. Thank you Dave.
Delivered as advertised. What impressed me most was the speed and efficiency. From start to finish I’d reckon it took 3 hours and about only 15 minutes with my actual cell phone provider. Good job!!!
Within two hours I had successfully purchased and ported my 212 exchange. The clarity of the website and approachable staff at 212areacode.com made the transaction easy. My new number recaptures the NY I remember from my childhood…my hometown.
I had a great experience with 212areacode.com, and I am glad I chose to use them rather than any of the offerings on ebay, because I was able to see the whole number on offer, choose one I like, and have the details delivered by email the same day.I was particularly impressed with the follow-up service I received making for a quick and painless porting experience, even after the sale had already been made, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this to anybody who asks me how I got my number!
It took less than one hour to order and successfully port a 212 number to T-Mobile. I am very pleased.
Probably the thing I get complimented on most frequently in my life is having a 212 number for my cell. Not sure how I feel about this. — Andrew Garrison (@ninetek) December 16, 2012
