Area code 503 serves the Portland, Oregon region. Area code 503 was one of the original area codes created as part of the North American Numbering Plan in 1947.
This plan was implemented to format phone numbers throughout the US and Canada.
Each individual telephone number in the United States and Canada is assigned a seven-digit telephone number. These seven-digit sequences are unique only within their respective area codes. The can be repeated in other area codes. The area, central office, and station code form a complete 10 digit telephone number. This applies to both cell phone and landline numbers.
Seven-digit (local format) allows a caller to dial a local number without including its area code. In most of the US and Canada, 10-digit dialling is mandatory. For international calling, the North American Numbering Plan uses the international code +1.
To dial a Portland number internationally, the caller would need to enter the number as +1 503 xxx xxxx.
Originally, 503 served the entire state of Oregon. It was split in 1995 with the introduction of the new area code 541. The 541 area code was designed to cover the northwestern portion of the state.
Then, on July 1, 1999, the new area code 971 overlay for most of the 503 regions, including Portland. An “overlay” is a new area code that is implemented to cover the same geographical region as an existing area code. Overlay codes are commonly used when existing area codes run out of available numbers. With that deployment, 10-digit dialling became mandatory for the entire state of Oregon.
