Area code 425 is a telephone dialing code in Washington for the suburbs north and east of Seattle, particularly the Eastside, extending east to North Bend, north to Everett, and south to Maple Valley.

The area code went into service on April 27, 1997, as part of a three-way split of area code 206. The period from April 27, 1997, through November 15, 1997, was considered a "transition period" for this new area code. The 425 area code officially (mandatory use) went into effect on Sunday, November 16, 1997.

The song "Operator" by Danish eurodance artist Miss Papaya begins with an automated message notifying the caller that area code 206 has been changed to 425.
