Here comes the 835!  Yes, 835 is now going to be a part of the Philly burbs and Lehigh Valley.

Here are the details:

The Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission (PUC) announced Thursday that “835” will become the new area code for Lehigh, Berks, Delaware, Chester, and Northampton counties, and a portion of Montgomery County once the current “610” and “484” telephone numbers are exhausted in 2023.

The decision was made following a 3-0 vote from the PUC on Thursday to approve a petition filed by the North American Numbering Plan Administrator (NANPA). The NANPA is the neutral third-party entity that allocates telephone numbering resources.

The NANPA said the remaining supply of available 610/484 telephone numbers is estimated to be exhausted in early 2023. The new 835 area code will then be assigned to the 610/484 region after that.
