Idaho Area Codes and Their Locations

Area codes identify specific portions of the state from which incoming phone calls originate. Every phone number carries the area code of the region where it was registered. Being able to identify area codes provides receivers with the ability to filter phone calls from unfamiliar areas effectively. Idaho residents can also avoid scammers by using reverse phone lookup services to identify unknown callers.

There are two area codes in Idaho, listed below:

208 - Location
986 - Location
