    I had a need for these, not sure if anyone else will, but if you do, then hey!

    This is simply a .txt > .prc conversion of the US and associated territories area codes and zip codes (separate .prc). You'll need an ereader for these. I have eReader Basic installed and it works great.

    PalmGear has several area code DB's listed, but I didn't see the need for any other programs or anything more complicated than a plaintext listing.

    This listing also includes some of the major cities and the time zone associated with the area code.

    So if you were to search for 313 you'd fine Detroit.

    If you were to search for Detroit you'd find 313, etc...

    Hope it comes in handy for someone besides me.

    Here are some direct links (you MUST right-click save target as) since TreoCentral has a maximum file size on attachments that is too low for the other stuff.

    I think I might need a bit more direction. I downloaded the file from my treo....and I opened e reader, but it doesn't see the file.
    I can see the file on my card with Resco, but I'm not sure how to get it to open.

    How about area code prc for dummies

    Nice.

    I HotSync'ed the areacodes.prc file and when I started up eReader it was listed. Once something is opened you can get to other documents via Menu-->Book-->Open.

    On my eReader Open menu it shows up as "(doc) Area Code DB".

    It seems it should be a relatively simple application to develop (said the guy with no capability or experience whatsoever!!) to link this database with the inbound calls so that when there is not a match with your contacts, it could at least pop-up with an unknown number what city or region it's coming from.

    Does anyone know if such an app exists? I haven't been able to find it anywhere and could come in really handy when you only have 2-3 rings to figure out if you want to answer a call or not.

    There are at least 2

    CityID from Cequent and RaNo called Treo Area Codes, maybe...

    Thanks for the posting. I have been looking around for Zip code and Area code database. I installed a few programs like Mobiledb and listpro just to be able to view it. Now with these two files, what I need is only a text viewer. This is really a simple and elegant way.

    Thank you for these! Also, in your signature I see you are with Sprint, may I ask how you got such a low rate for all that you get? I am with Sprint and have the same plan you do except I do not have texting and I also have a second line with nothing extra on it and we pay $70 a month.
