Originally, it not only covered the western portion of the Metroplex, but much of central Texas, the Texoma region and the South Plains. In 1957, Lubbock and the South Plains were combined with part of 915 to form area code 806. On July 25, 1997 it was reduced to its current size in a three-way split. The northern portion became area code 940, while the southern portion became area code 254. Irving has areas that use 817 even though it is within Dallas County.
This was intended as a long-term solution, but within two years 817 was close to exhausting once again due to the explosive growth in the Metroplex, as well as the popularity of auxiliary devices. To solve this problem, area code 682 was created on October 7, 2000 as an overlay to 817.
