Phoneburner purchases numbers from a vendor and sometimes numbers are not available in certain area codes or can be back-ordered if they are popular.
Some area codes that are no longer available for purchase or have not come available in an extended amount of time (years) are:
212, 223, 303, 310, 364, 640, 680, 820, 838, 907, 927, 934 and 986
Some that are popular and in high demand that will put you on a waiting list (for 1+ months) for the number at this time (as of 11/02/2021) are:
327, 480, 602, 603, 703, 713, 718, 720, 801
Local-ID numbers ordered will remain pending, and you will be put on a waitlist unless you request to make a change. We can't guarantee a time frame for these numbers if you order them, but they will come up eventually when you are on the waitlist. If you do not want to wait, please email support (email@example.com) and let us know if another area code is in the same area you would like to order and which one you would like to replace. There is not a waitlist available for vPhone numbers.
If you need assistance in finding an area code in close vicinity to one that is not available, a complete list of North American Area codes can be found on Wikipedia.
