The North American Numbering Plan Administrator has not assigned Area Code 798 for use. The code 798 is officially planned as a general-purpose area code that is typically assigned to a geographic area, but it is also designated as an expansion code that is reserved for future use if the current ten-digit format needs to be expanded.
It is a spam call if you receive a phone call from area code 798. There is no such phone number as 798-xxx-xxx.
Phone code 798 has not been assigned to any geographical location by NANPA. However, it’s possible that the call may be originating from outside of the NANP, or it could be a spoofed number.
An expansion code is a three-digit code that can be added to an existing area code to create more phone numbers for a specific geographic region.
Whenever a geographic region in the NANP runs out of available phone numbers, rather than creating a new area code for that region, an expansion code can be added to an already existing area code to allow for more phone number combinations.
