Richmond Hill Area Code 289
A geographical split of area code 416 resulted in the conception of the Richmond Hill area code. The split happened to prevent the fast depletion of area code numbers and also to delineate the areas. Another factor that has contributed to the splitting is the large size of the location that the 416 area code once governed. The Richmond Hill area code is also known as the 905 area code. Splitting of areas provided callers some guide on what area code to use.
The original Richmond Hill area code includes the Toronto proper and nearby surrounding areas, while the other area code governs the suburbs of Toronto. This geographical split resulted into a form of stereotyping. Callers already have some expectations when they are calling to a Richmond Hill area code. Some associate companies and individuals owning the 905 area code having typical suburban traits and characteristics.
When the Richmond Hill area code was nearly used up, authorities proposed of using an overlay area code. They used it instead of geographically splitting the area to prevent another set of wrong labeling based on area code numbers. The area code overlay for Richmond was the 289 area code. This meant that a building in Richmond could possess both area code 905 and its overlay 289 area code. This is because area code 905 and it is the 289 area code covers the same area.
Though using an overlay code was effective in removing stereotyping among the phone owners, it produced another negative effect. It confused callers.
