phone area codes

212 in new york city
310 in los angeles

those two areas codes on a cell phone are a status symbol

But I am from a technical background and I know that older phone numbers have longer history so more likely to get spam

Does a phone number ever get less spam

Are you advising clients to change their number to the new area code (that is not a status symbol)

No phone number avoids spam any more.  An unlisted or unpublished number does not help.  The boiler rooms in Pakistan and India dial through entire exchanges, one number at a time, trying to find victims.  Since international phone calls can be made via the internet without cost, the situation is only going to get worse.

This reminded me of a question I asked last year.  Just passing along information I found for those located in USA.
