Extended information

The North American telephone area code 757 was established July 1, 1996 as a split from area code 804. It covers the southeast corner of the Commonwealth of Virginia, including the state's three most populous cities. The region within its service area includes the vast majority of the Hampton Roads metropolitan area, encompassing the Virginia Peninsula, including Newport News, Hampton, and Williamsburg, and South Hampton Roads, including Virginia Beach, Norfolk, Chesapeake, Portsmouth, Franklin, and Suffolk, as well as the Eastern Shore of Virginia, the portion of Virginia on the Delmarva Peninsula.

Before the implementation of number pooling, 757 was projected to run out of numbers as early as 2002. A plan that would have allowed an overlay in the Hampton Roads metro and left all of the Eastern Shore in 757 (similar to Oregon's 971 overlay) was planned. However, this plan was never implemented and the area code is not projected to reach full capacity until sometime in 2011.
