Is there a way to reserve the remaining 650 numbers for home and small business landlines? I don't mind putting new cell phones and business PBX numbers in a new area code.

Proposed Changes to 408 Area Code:
Since the 408 area code is close to be exhausted, a new area code will be necessary in the region. The 408 area code is forecasted to require a new area code, confirmed to be area code 669, by the fourth quarter of 2012. Two relief options have been considered:
- A 408/669 overlay, which has been recommended, which would be the first overlay in northern California
- A 408/669 split, with either the western region (from downtown San Jose south and west) or the eastern region (an arc from Sunnyvale to Gilroy north and east of downtown San Jose) changing to 669
More information is found on the California Public Utilities Commission 408 Area Code page.

Isn't Mountain View in the 650 area code?
