Do Phone Number "Area Codes" Actually Matter Anymore? [View all]

I was exchanging e-mail, not phone messages oddly enough given my post's topic, with a friend of mine who I knew in Miami when I lived there. Now he lives in Dallas but retains his old 305 area-code phone number. One of my friends moved from Oregon to another state and still retains his 503 area-code number. I have a 503 number and if I moved I'd keep it because so many people have that number in their contacts lists and it's a perfectly good number so I see no reason to try to start remembering a new one.

So my random thoughts and ramblings right now are that area codes are not area codes anymore. We just have 10-digit numbers that identify us no matter where we are. Especially if that number is tied to a cell phone.

I Bet that's putting some tin-foil hats on more than a few people. Does anyone have a "666" area code? That'd be really fun to have just to tweak some people.
