Area Code 208 History:

01/01/1947
Area code 208 was put into service.

On September 5, 2017 area code 986 was put into service as an all services overlay of area code 208.

Ten digit dialing (area code + seven digit number) became necessary in the 208/986 overlay because different homes in the same geographic area can have the same seven digit phone number but each would have a different area code.
