The North American telephone area code 757 is a
NANPA telephone area code covering the southeast
corner of Virginia. It was established July 1, 1996, as a
split from area code 804.
The region within its service area includes the following:
   The vast majority of the Hampton Roads metropolitan
   area, encompassing:
       The Virginia Peninsula, including Newport News,
       Hampton, and Williamsburg, and
       South Hampton Roads, including Virginia Beach,
       Norfolk, Chesapeake, Portsmouth, Franklin, and
       Suffolk.
   The Eastern Shore of Virginia, the Virginia portion of
   the Delmarva Peninsula.
Before the implementation of number pooling, 757 was projected to run out of numbers as early as 2002. A plan was
developed that would have allowed an overlay in the Hampton Roads metro area leaving all of the Eastern Shore in 757;
however, this plan was never implemented and the area code is not projected to reach full capacity until sometime in 2015. [1]
