Next, let’s look at why you might need a 704 area code.

Where is area code 704?

The 704 area code is located in the state of North Carolina in the United States and is part of the Eastern time zone. The area code covers the city of Charlotte and its surrounding areas. It includes Anson, Cabarrus, and Mecklenburg counties, and the following cities:

  • Concord
  • Gastonia
  • Huntersville
  • Kannapolis
  • Matthews
  • Mooresville
  • Salisbury

The 704 code was one of the original 86 area codes created in 1947 and originally was the only area code for North Carolina. Just seven years later, the eastern portion was split into area code 919 (and eventually, the eastern-most part was split into 252). This remained unchanged until 1998, when some western portions were later split into the 828 area. Later, the remaining area of 704 received an overlay area code of 980 in 2001 due to the demand for phone numbers in the area.
