Area code splits and overlays have caused virtually all telephone and
fax lists to be out of date! If you are a Telemarketer, or routinely
work with lists of telephone numbers, you know how much time can be
wasted dialing phone numbers which are no longer current, due to changes
in area codes throughout the United States.
Let the AmeriCom Area Code Wizard update your phone and fax database to include the latest new area code changes, starting at just $49.99. Simply send us your phone lists and the Wizard will return them with new numbers updated from past and present area code changes.
With over 5 years of specializing in area codes for the AmeriCom Area Decoder we have the expertise and the data to correct your database no matter how large or small. In the past two years over 38 new area codes have been added affecting over 50 million phone numbers, and many more are expected.
When an area code is split, some prefixes (also called NXX's) stay with the old area code, and others are assigned to the new area code. Using area code split data (compiled since 1995), along with a complete database of prefix information, the Area Code Wizard matches old phone numbers against the new prefix assignments to determine if a number has changed. If is has, the area code in the old number is replaced with the new area code.
In some cases, the old prefixes have been reassigned in the original
area code. In these cases city, state and/or ZIP code are required to
determine the proper area code. In a few cases (where overlays are
implemented, rather than splits) area codes cannot be determined even by
city, state and zip. Fortunately, this amounts to only a fraction of a
percent in most cases.
You email us your lists (in plain text format), also known as ASCII. We correct and return the data to you, also by email.
Most database programs and applications have a feature to export data to "text format". You simply export the data using your applications "File Export" or "Save As" feature, to TAB delimited text format. (Other delimiters can be used, but if your application supports TAB delimited, it is preferable).
If you need help exporting your data, we will be happy to assist.
We will repair your phone numbers and return the data to you in the
same format as you sent it, but with the area codes corrected. You then
import it back into your application or database.
Files which can be read with Notepad (or other editor) including
.txt, csv, comma separated, TAB delimited, fixed width etc. Fields may
be quoted or unquoted, however, TAB delimited unquoted, is preferrable.
Data can be emailed as an attachment, uploaded (via FTP), or sent on
3.5" Floppy or Zip disk. Compressed files in PKZip (.zip), gzip (.gz)
or compress (.Z) format are acceptable.
We return it by email, or we will mail a 3.5" Floppy or Zip disk.
Data is returned in the same format it was sent. No fields or layouts
are modified. When you import your new file it will look exactly as it
did when you sent it (except all of the area codes will be corrected).
