Local phone numbers for area code 646: Ideal for sales and customer teams

Local phone numbers are ideal for sales and customer teams for a number of reasons. First, they help businesses build trust with potential customers. When people in New York see a local phone number, they are more likely to pick up the phone and call.

If you are looking for a way to improve your sales and customer service teams, especially if many of them are located in New York, consider getting a local phone number with a 646 area code. And when you buy a local number from Dialpad, you’re getting far more than just a VoIP phone number.

How it works

All of Dialpad’s paid plans come with a local number included, in this case, a number with your local 619 area code. This is along with unified communications features like phone calls, video conferencing, SMS/MMS messaging and team messages, and more—all from one intuitive, easy-to-use desktop or mobile app:

Next, let’s look at why you might need a 646 area code.

Where is area code 646?

The (646) area code covers all of Manhattan in New York City. This is an overlay area code created in 1999 after running out of numbers for the 917 area code, which now covers most of New York City and Staten Island (not just Manhattan).

With over 8 million people in the state of New York and over 1.5 million in New York City, the 646 area code is one of the most densely populated area codes in the U.S. — a large market of potential customers. It's also a highly-desired area code since it's home to many iconic landmarks, prestigious universities, and renowned businesses.

Other area codes that share the same area include 212, which was one of the original area codes created in 1947. Area code 332 also covers this area, which was added in 2017. If you want a New York area code that doesn't include Manhattan, you can opt for a 347 area code or a Long Island area code (516 and 363) instead.
