437 area code

437 area code coming to Toronto

At long last, someone for the 647 area code users to turn their noses down at. Starting March 25, the 437 area code will be added to the 416 and 647 area codes as a result of increasing demands for numbers in the region. The 905/289 will also see an additional area code: 365.

The new area codes should not affect existing numbers of change the way long distance numbers are dialed out. And for those who are worried about remembering an extra few numbers; in the wise words of The Simpsons: "Well, scientists have discovered that even monkeys can memorize ten numbers. Are you stupider than a monkey?"
