Note: the area code for portions of East Tennessee around Knoxville and
Chattanooga is now "423" instead of '615'. If you try to reach a number for
any East Tennessee group listed below, you may need to use the '423' prefix
instead of the '615' prefix.
New area code note: some portions of middle Tennessee are now using
931 as the area code, such as Houston County; if you fail to reach someone
at area code 615, it may have changed to 931.
