] The 334 area code was one of the first two area codes not to take the N1X or N0X form (i.e., the middle digit is neither 0 nor 1) in the North American Numbering Plan, along with Washington area code 360, which began service on the same day. In order to allow people time to reprogram electronics such as computers and fax machines, use of the 205 area code would continue in the 334 areas through May 13, 1995.

It covers central Alabama including the Montgomery, Auburn-Opelika, and Dothan metropolitan areas. The original territory for 334 included the southern half of Alabama.
Area code 251 was subsequently split from 334 in 2001.
