Area code 772 is an important telephone area code within the North American Numbering Plan, serving a specific region in the state of Florida. Geographic Location and Coverage: Area code 772 serves the Treasure Coast of Florida. This region encompasses several cities and counties in east central Florida, including Sebastian, Fellsmere, Vero Beach, Fort Pierce, Port St. Lucie, Jensen Beach, Stuart, Hobe Sound, Indiantown, and Palm Bay. It also covers four counties: Saint Lucie County, Martin County, Indian River County, and Brevard County. This area code is crucial for the telecommunication needs of these coastal communities​​​​​​. Establishment and Service Area: The 772 area code was assigned on August 25, 2001, and went into service on February 11, 2002. The establishment of this area code was part of the ongoing efforts to meet the growing telecommunication demands in Florida. It reflects the expanding need for new phone numbers in the region​​. Dialing Pattern: For local calls within the same area code in the 772 region, the dialing pattern is seven digits. For long-distance calls, the dialing pattern is 1+10 digits. This pattern is consistent with many other area codes in the United States, where a distinction is made between local and long-distance dialing​​. Time Zone: Area code 772 is located in the Eastern Standard Time (EST) zone. It observes Daylight Saving Time, meaning the clocks are adjusted forward by one hour during the spring and then back again in the autumn​​. In summary, area code 772 is an integral part of Florida's telecommunications network, particularly serving the Treasure Coast and its surrounding areas. Its implementation reflects the growing need for telephone numbers in the region, and its coverage of several key cities and counties makes it a vital communication link for this part of Florida. The standard dialing patterns and its location in the Eastern Time Zone are also significant operational aspects of this area code.
