    I Don't know if this has been done or not, but Its hard to imagine that it hasn't since its an idea that's too obvious and important to be ignored.

    How many times have you received a call from not only a number you don't know...but from an unknown area code?

    you turn to your friend and go "hey, what area code is 347?" (its Queens, NY btw)

    The idea here is that carriers would have the area code ID below any person that isn't in your contact list.


    if its a 516 number, below it, it would say Nassau County, NY

    or 702 XXX-XXXX : las vegas, nv

    do they do this? if they do, what carrier uses it?

    it makes it easier to screen calls. often cities have multiple area codes, and a friend may call from a different number, same city. I know only one person in nevada. if he called me from a reno phone, or a henderson phone, or a vegas phone, or any nv number, id know its him. without the area code ID, id have no idea where its coming from. and I wouldn't take the call. knowing its nv, id take it.

    And by the way - area code 347 is not only Queens - It's also Brooklyn!

    is it just an app that lets you look up areacodes?

    or does it display it next to the number as the call is incoming?

    the latter is what im alluding to.

    It lets you look up cities by entering the area code and prefix, and also tells you the city/state of the incoming number.
