If you have been receiving calls from an area code that shows up as 781, its really not surprising, as this North American area code serves a portion of the city of Boston in Massachusetts, and is also shared as an overlay with area code 339.

Together, these two telephone codes serve many districts, and some of them are Pembroke, Burlington, Stoneham, Abington and South Weymouth.

If you don’t recognize any of those places its OK. 781 covers the mass of six counties in Massachusetts with a rough estimate of population being around one and half million people, and the counties by name are Bristol, Essex, Middlesex, Norfolk, Plymouth and Suffolk, so this leaves a very good chance that a number that has been calling you matches this area and could be virtually anyone.

Due to increased need for more North American telephone area codes in and around the area, area code 781 was created as a split from the older code 617, and the overlay that would later go on to help now used as 339 came out in 2001.

The big question on your mind might be, how do I get more information on the whole phone number now that I know its probably coming out of Boston? in other words – how do I figure out the exact location of it, and who owns this telephone number?

Most people who want to get the facts about someone who is calling them will simply use a reverse phone number lookup.

These types of directories can be extremely useful as they can typically do reverse searches on both cell and land line numbers. Now, you could just try doing a search in say Google with the number you are interested in getting data on, but the only thing that it might return would be a public number like for a business, and cell phone numbers just aren’t publicly listed. This means that chances are the number that you have on hand is private, and you will have to use a real reverse cell phone lookup instead.
