Get Ready to Dial All Ten Numbers in Idaho

TWIN FALLS, Idaho (KLIX) Ten-digit dialing is just days away for callers in Idaho as the state will begin using a new area code.

According to the Idaho Public Utilities Commission, the new area code 986 will join the old area code, 208, starting Saturday, August 5. The area code was needed after officials realized they’d start running out of numbers to issue with the current area code.

Any new phone number issued after September 5 will start getting the new 986 area code. Regulators decided to go that route instead of splitting the state in half geographically between the two numbers as some states have done. Seven digit dialing will not work after August 5.

CORRECT: (986) 737-6012 or (208) 737-6012

WRONG: 737-6012
