How to Find an Area Code Using the Web

By

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, Yahoo, Ask, and MSN Search; although both AOL Search and A9 semi-support it (you'll have to click on a few things to get to the area code information).
