In case you missed it, today marks the first day that new phone numbers in the Houston area may be assigned a fourth area code: 346. If you are getting a new number (beginning today) you might still get a 713, 281, or 832 number. But we are now also using 346.
You can blame the explosion of population, increase in mobile devices, or one of any other many reasons. But the fact remains that the inclusion of 346 to the Houston market will give us much-needed additional numbers to assign to new users in the area.
