Updated Jan 02, 2010Area Code 408
"E" is Eastern Time Zone, "C" is Central Time Zone, "M" is Mountain Time Zone, and "P" is Pacific Time Zone. Occasionally, an area code will fall in more than one time zone. In this case, the abbreviation is a combination of the previous abbreviations. Some area codes are shown with time zones referencing Universal Coordinated Time (UTC). Additional technical status can be retrived from the North American Numbering Plan Administration on the 408 area code specific link here.
Area Code 408 ( area code map)
Dates and historical information Area code 408 went live into service on January 01, 1959.  It was formed as a subdivision of the 415 area code.  It has had the 669 area code(s) overlaid on it.
Growth Status This area code went live on January 01, 1959 as an "overlay" on the 669 area code. This means the 408 area code was created in part to provide more telephone numbers for people in the 669 area code area. In other words, 408 is a subdivision of the 669 area code. Due to popularity, this area code is starting to run out of free telephone numbers for people to use which means that this area code is technically referred to as being "in jeoparady." Although planning efforts have been put on hold, a notice has been distributed regarding the area code subdivision.
2 Technical Status 2 Area code 408 is currently live and in service.
