Not yet in Service

Area code 986 has been approved by the Idaho Public Utilities Commission as an overlay of area code 208 with an implementation date of September 5, 2017. Effective 08/05/2017 ten digit dialing (area code + seven digit number) will be 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. Area codes 208 and 986 will serve the entire state of Idaho.
