What is a 205 area code?

205 is one of the original 86 area codes created by AT&T and the Bell System in 1947. It originally served the entire state of Alabama. 205 was split in 1995 creating the need to update some of the phone numbers to area code 334, and again in 1998 to create area code 256. To avoid exhausting all possible phone numbers in this area code, relief planning has begun.
