Albuquerque Area Code 505

The 505 area code was originally assigned to the entire state of New Mexico, under the North American Numbering Plan. The goal of the NANP was to standardize telephone dialling formats in the United States and Canada. That format is still used today, for both cell phone numbers and landlines. All phone companies in Canada and the US use the NANP telephone numbering format.

The NANP created the 505 area code in 1947 for use by all New Mexico phone numbers. On October 7, 2007, the 505 area code was split. The 575 area code was introduced as an overlay. An “overlay” is a new area code that is set up to cover the same region as an existing area code.

Overlay codes are commonly used when existing area codes near depletion. The Northwestern and central parts of the state continued to be covered by the 505 area code. The rest of New Mexico is now served by 575.
