Area Codes in Maricopa County

Listing of Greater Phoenix Communities and Their Area Codes


Arizona Area Codes

Area Codes

Before the Phoenix area grew so large, 602 was the only area code for the entire state. Later, everything outside the metro Phoenix area was assigned the 520 area code. The Valley of the Sun continued its explosive growth and 480 and 623 were added. Then in 2001 the area code 928 was added to the Arizona mix.

Most people think that we have three area codes in Maricopa County. Not so! There are actually four, because Gila Bend and Wickenburg have a different area code than the other cities and towns of Maricopa County.

See a map of Arizona Area Codes.

Note: These area codes relate only to landlines. Cell phone area codes are not restricted by geography. A person who lives in a home in one city can obtain wireless service with a different area code than the one assigned to their landline.
