Next, let’s look at why you might need a 901 area code.

Where is area code 901?

Area code 901 serves the southwestern corner of Tennessee, and it primarily covers the city of Memphis and its surrounding areas, along with parts of Shelby County. Other communities within the 901 area code may include areas like Germantown, Collierville, Bartlett, and Millington. It's one of the more recognized area codes in Tennessee, mainly due to its association with the vibrant and culturally rich city of Memphis.

The 901 area code was one of the original area codes established by the North American Numbering Plan (NANP) and was officially implemented on January 1, 1947. It initially covered the entire state of Tennessee, but was later reduced to its current region as additional area codes were created to serve the rest of the state.
