Area code 806

Area code 806 is a telephone area code in the North American Numbering Plan (NANP) for the U.S. state of Texas in the Panhandle and South Plains, including the cities of Amarillo and Lubbock. It was created in 1957 in a flash-cut from numbering plan area (NPA) 915, the north-western corner of the state, but also incorporated a small portion of the region of area code 817 to the east.[1]

Of the six area codes serving Texas from 1957 to 1983, this is the only one that has yet to need relief through division or an overlay plan.
