Extended information

American area code 760 is a California telephone area code which encompasses much of the southeastern and southernmost portions of the state. The area code includes Imperial, Inyo, and Mono Counties, as well as portions of San Diego, Riverside, San Bernardino, and Kern counties.

760 was created March 23, 1997 out of what was then part of 619. Within a decade, however, 760 was strained for numbers, and after public discussions and hearings it was ultimately decided, in April 2008, to split the San Diego County portion of the area code into the newly created area code 442, which goes into effect in the spring of 2009. A grassroots effort by affected residents, called, has spurred eight San Diego County elected officials to send an urgent letter to the CPUC asking them to delay and reconsider their decision.

On October 16, the CPUC reversed their vote and approved the 442 code as an overlay. Starting in May 2009, the new code will be introduced to new users. The overlay will require all callers to dial 10 digits, including the area code.
