Local phone numbers for area code 916: Perfect for sales and customer teams

A local phone number is the perfect way for a sales or customer team to establish a presence in Sacramento. There are several reasons for this:

  1. A local phone number gives your team a sense of credibility and legitimacy. Customers in Sacramento are more likely to trust a business with a 916 phone number, as it makes the business appear more established.
  2. A local phone number is more memorable and allows customers to reach your team directly, without having to make a long-distance call. This makes it easy for customers to get in touch with your team, and increases the chances that they’ll actually reach someone who can help them.
  3. A 916 phone number shows that you’re invested in serving the Sacramento market. This can help you build trust with potential customers, and make them more likely to do business with you.

When you get a local number from Dialpad, you’re getting far more than just a VoIP phone number.

Next, let’s look at why you might need a 916 area code.

Where is area code 916?

The 916 area code is located in the state of California, specifically in the Sacramento metropolitan area. This area code includes parts of Sacramento, Yolo, El Dorado, and Placer counties, and the following cities:

  • Sacramento
  • West Sacramento
  • Elk Grove
  • Fair Oaks
  • Folsom
  • Florin
  • Rancho Cordova
  • Antelope

The 916 area code was one of the original area codes established in 1947. It originally served northern California, while 415 area code served the central part, and 213 area code covered southern California. Although changes were made since then, this area code covers Sacramento and nearby areas. Later in 2018, the area was assigned area code 279 as an overlay.
