Vancouver Area Code 604
On its nascent stages, the Vancouver area code was the 604 area code. It is among the original area codes given to Canada. In the late 90's, a geographical split resulted in the creation of area code 250 given to the province of British Columbia. Early in the decade, an additional area code was added to the Vancouver area code, the 778 area code. New phone numbers will be given a 778 area code because the 604 area code has all been used up. Nowadays, the Vancouver area code is composed of 604 area code and the additional 778 area code.
In the middle of 2008, the 10-digit dialing system in Vancouver implemented the year before became the official way of dialing a number in Vancouver. If one calls using 7 digits their call would not be connected, for this system would only recognize 10 numbers to be dialed. Calling a Vancouver local number also works in the same way. If your company is located in Vancouver your phone number will not change, but callers will have to include the Vancouver area code along with the Vancouver local number to place a call. Although your numbers does not change, some customers might confuse your area code with another, since Vancouver has two area codes. Instead of contacting your company, they would be led to another organization just because they pushed the wrong buttons. This scenario poses a problem for businesses that are located in the Vancouver area. Customers that would incorrectly dial either your Vancouver area code or Vancouver local number will not be able to contact you. This might result to lost profits for your business.
