South Carolina Area Codes, United States

Find the real owner of someone with a 803, 843 and 864 South Carolina area codes

South Carolina

South Carolina was one of the original thirteen colonies that declared independence in 1776. The five million residents of this state typically register phone numbers for personal communications and running businesses. These individuals often receive phone calls from unknown callers. And given the uptick in phone scams, dealing directly with unknown callers is not advisable. Instead, use a reverse phone lookup to find the owner of an unknown number, including their names and contact information, on the South Carolina phone numbers database.

Before this online database, most people would need to consult a printed telephone directory, aka white pages.  However, the information in these phonebooks is organized geographically by town or neighborhood in a large city. So, suppose the unknown caller was from out-of-town. You would have had to find the white pages for that town, as there was no printed statewide directory.  

Moving the telephone directories online solved this problem. The South Carolina phone number database lets interested persons find information on phone number owners regardless of location. How does this work? 

Take the typical South Carolina phone number, 864-NXX-XXXX, for example. 

864 is the area code; NXX is the prefix code, and XXXX is the line number. The area code only tells you the phone number owner’s general location, i.e., city or county. The prefix code narrows it down further and shows more specific information about the caller’s location and phone type. Finally, the last set of digits, the line number, is unique to a specific owner. So, if a South Carolina phone number were a house address, the line number would be a specific flat number or house number. 

Although South Carolina phone numbers can have the same area code and prefix code, the line number is always unique to a specific person or business. No two persons can have the same line number. However, several persons may have owned the same phone number in the past — this happens when a service provider reassigns the number. Either way, a reverse phone lookup will provide the names and contact information of past and current registered owners of a number.
