    Can you purchase a cell phone with a CA area code in PA?

    First Name:
    Phone numbers (including the area code) are assigned by the carrier (or reseller) when you contract for service (and then assigned to the phone of your choice). I think that your best option is to ask one or more carriers if they are able to assign your desired area code.

    If you simply want to buy a cell phone and then get service later there is no issue--the phone will not be assigned a number.
