Indiana: History | Northern (219, 260, 269) Central (317, 463, 765) Southern (812, 930)
Southern IndianaSouthern Indiana (formerly NPA 812) is covered by two area codes (NPAs) and is divided into five Local Access Transport Areas (LATAs). Area Code 930 was placed in service March 7th, 2015, overlaying the original 812 area code.
Permissive 10 digit local dialing began March 1, 2014, with mandatory 10 digit local dialing effective February 7, 2015.
Calls within each LATA (except local calls) are carried by an "Intra-LATA" carrier (intra is within). Calls to another LATA are carried by an "Inter-LATA" carrier (inter is between). To identify their Intra-LATA carrier, customers may call 1+NPA+700-4141 (substituting their NPA for "NPA"). To identify their Inter-LATA carrier customers may call 1-700-555-4141.
Each exchange area is connected to a "tandem" for connection to other exchanges and the long distance networks. There are several tandem locations across southern Indiana. The tandems are grouped together to form each LATA. See below for maps of the individual LATAs in southern Indiana.
