I‘ve been hearing rumblings for a while now about the addition of a new OKC area code, which is something I haven’t thought about in my lifetime.
With the rise of area code pride in pop culture — and the subsequent branding of clothing with them as fashion statement — I’ve come to really like the ol’ “405” we were given long ago. I don’t think any new number we could add will be quite as catchy, or quite as simple to remember, but here is a Wikipedia list showing which area code possibilities are currently unused.
This is all silly, I know, but it’s also interesting in that it could be another example of growth for the city and the surrounding area. I just hope we pick something Drake would approve of.
