Not only is Indianapolis the most populated city in Indiana, but it is also the capital of the state and the seat of Marion County. Known mainly as the home of the Indianapolis Colts and the Indianapolis Pacers, many people do not realize what all the capital of Indiana has to offer.

About Indianapolis

Indianapolis currently ranks as the 15th most populated city in the United States. Indianapolis is known for many things besides its professional sports, including auto racing, manufacturing, and professional services.

The largest industries that provide jobs in the 463 area code are trade, business services, health services, hospitality, and manufacturing. The city is home to three Fortune 500 companies: Elevance Health and Eli Lilly & Co., both in the health services industry, and Corteva, which is in the agricultural industry. Some other popular companies based in Indianapolis are Finish Line, Inc., Lids, and Steak' n Shake.

There are also many cultural attractions, such as the Indianapolis Museum of Art, one of the country's oldest museums. Hilbert Circle Theatre is a local favorite if you are more of a performing arts person. Additionally, the Children's Museum of Indianapolis is the largest children's museum in the entire world!

Where is Area Code 463 Located?

Area code 463 mainly covers the Indianapolis area in the Central Time Zone, though it does reach a little beyond the city borders. Additionally, it is essential to remember that 463 is one of many area codes covering Indianapolis; area code 317 shares that responsibility.

Area code 463 is a North American Numbering Plan (NANP) code that covers all or part of the following counties: Boone, Hamilton, Johnson, Morgan, Shelby, Madison, Hendricks, Hancock, and Marion. The major city that is covered in this area code includes Indianapolis, of course. Other major cities include Fishers, Greenwood, Westfield, Plainfield, Noblesville, Mooresville, Brownsburg, and Carmel.

The original area code was 317; however, a new area code was introduced when numbers started running low. This was area code 463, and the year was 2016, which shows you just how new this area code is. Other popular Indiana area codes include 260 and 812.

How to Get a 463 Area Code

Getting a new number, especially when it involves a new area code sounds fun to a few people. However, it can be easier than you think! Depending on why you need a new number for your mobile phone, there are a few options for getting a phone with a 463 area code.

  1. Contact your phone service provider and request a new number with the 463 area code. This may be your easiest choice if you move to the Indianapolis area. However, there are also a few downsides that you should be prepared for. If you change your number through your provider, you will risk losing your current number and your contact, inbox, and blocked numbers. These losses can prove to be quite annoying.
  2. Buy a phone while you are in Indianapolis, making sure to request the 463 area code since it is an overlay area code. The downside to getting a 463 area code is obvious: it requires travel to Indianapolis, which may be outside your plans. Don't worry; there is an option that is even easier and cheaper than both of these.
  3. Use the SLYNUMBER app and look up the 463 area code. This app is available for Android and iPhone users, which means it is available for anyone!

Benefits of a Second Phone Number

  2. With a second phone number, you will be more organized than ever! You can quickly tell if a personal or a professional call is coming to your phone. You can easily give out your second number for any business services, including calls for deals or advertisements. That means fewer of these calls that are coming to your personal number.
