  Area code 773 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The telephone area code 773 was formed in the city of Chicago, Illinois, USA in 1996.
The entire city of Chicago—and all of Chicagoland—were originally area code 312, but eventually the city itself was split between 312 in the Downtown/Loop and surrounding areas, and 773, comprising the vast physical majority of the city and all outlying areas within city limits.
While most large business and tourists identify with the 312 part of Chicago, the city as a whole is strongly identified by its diverse and vibrant neighborhoods, and most Chicago neighborhoods fall within the 773 area code.

 Area code 312 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Area code 312 encompasses the Chicago Loop and surrounding areas in Chicago, Illinois.
312 was one of the original 86 area codes created in 1947, then called "Numbering Plan Areas." With the rotary dialing technology available at the time, care was given to keep the number of "clicks" to a minimum for large cities, hence Chicago being assigned a code with only six clicks.
In 1996, most of the city split off into 773 after the northern suburbs and western suburbs split into area codes 847 and 630 respectively.

Ameritech proposed to use a new area code (630) as an "overlay." An "overlay" NPA covers the same geographical area as an existing area code, or area codes, and allows customers in the area to be served through either code.
Contending that area code relief should be the responsibility of the states, Ameritech and others urge the Commission not to become involved in area code relief planning.
NPA codes and the central office codes assigned within the NPA code should be viewed as essential resources to be shared as fairly and equitably as possible by all those carriers who require such codes to offer interstate access service to their customers.

 Jacquelyn Mitchard: New area codes push all the wrong buttons
That was the area code for Chicago, for Pete's sake, and anyone could see why it was the area code for Chicago.
Because New York's area code was "212," Chicago's was "312." The logic is plain: It sort of, but not quite, incorporates the Second City concept, and also features a sporty, hotel-bellhop-whistle sound cities should have on the front end of their phone numbers.
Now, his area code is "847," an even more insulting and nonsensical area code, added on to his already unintelligible phone number, a string of non-repeating digits without a single rescue cue, not a birthday, anniversary nor even the saving grace of oddsies-evensies.
