Hi, it’s Leslie Harris, and after more than 25 years, the 708 is finally getting a second area code.
The 464 area code was chosen to overlay 708 all the way back in 1996, but it’s taking this long because well, there hasn’t been a high enough demand until now. 708 covers most of western and southern Cook county and parts of Will county including Berwyn, Cicero, Blue Island, Crest Hill, La Grange, Norridge, Orland Park, South Holland, Tinley Park, Westchester and Western springs and many more.
So if you live in the 708 area, any new numbers will now be assigned with the area code 464. If you have a phone number that starts with 708, it will NOT change.
