Use a Search Engine for an Area Code Search
If you're trying to figure out what part of the country a U.S. area code is related to, all you need to do is type in the area code into most any search engine. This works best in Google
, and MSN Search
; although both AOL Search
semi-support it (you'll have to click on a few things to get to the area code information).
