Area code 716 is a telephone area code in the North American Numbering Plan (NANP) for Buffalo, Niagara Falls, and four surrounding counties in western New York.

Area code 716 was one of the original North American area codes established in October 1947. Its numbering plan area (NPA) originally extended across significant portions of central New York, as far east as Corning. In 1954, area code 607 was created by merging the eastern portion of 716 with the southern portion of the NPA with area code 315.[1] In 2001, the new area code 585 was created for Rochester and its suburbs. Until 1993, it was bounded at the Niagara River by area code 416 (now 905) in Ontario.

The Buffalo 716ers basketball team is named for the telephone area code. Telephone calls to God may be made to 776–2323, according to the movie Bruce Almighty (2003); that number was removed from the video & television versions as, while it was (and remains) unassigned in Buffalo's area code 716, it was routinely misdialled to other area codes as a nuisance call to actual subscribers.[2]

Prior to October 2021, area code 716 had telephone numbers assigned for the central office code 988. In 2020, 988 was designated nationwide as a dialing code for the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline, which created a conflict for exchanges that permit seven-digit dialing. This area code was therefore scheduled to transition to ten-digit dialing by October 24, 2021.[3]

Service area

Because of Olean's proximity to the 716/585 line, some Olean exchanges use the 585 area code (particularly those in use for Sprint Corporation cell phones).
