Columbia Area Code 803

803 is the area code for most of central South Carolina. The 803 area code is anchored by Columbia, which is the state capital of South Carolina. 803 is one of the original 86 area codes deployed in 1947 under the North American Numbering Plan.

The NANP is responsible for formatting telephone numbers and assigning area codes.

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. 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. 

803 served the entire state of South Carolina until 1995, when the upstate region was split off into area code 864. In 1998 the coastal region was split with the introduction area code 843.
