Advanced Movie Premier/Customer Appreciation Event II

2015’s Movie Event – Star Wars, the Force Awakens was stellar! (See what I did there?) DataTel Communications is happier than an Ewok at Christmas to announce another pre-release private screening: Star Wars – Rouge One at the Majestic Cinema in Meridian, ID – a mere .000000041 parsecs from Kuna. Last year’s event was a blaster. We’re bringing back the same awesome program with even more prizes, drawings, food and fun. And our guests enjoy the bragging rights associated with being the first on the block to see this latest Star Wars opus. If you are reading this and not on our e-newsletter, please go to and look at the right of the page to sign up for our quality monthly newsletter, awesome events notifications and with always with the amount of spam you’d expect to find in a vegetarian’s pantry.

The Price of Greatness…

Our friends at the Idaho Public Utilities Commission have asked that we start practicing the use of a ten-digit dialing scheme (208-XXX-XXXX). This is in advance of Idaho’s new area code of 986 which is to be implemented in August 2017. “Area” code is a misnomer because the 986 identifier is not actually specific to a region like, for example, the Treasure Valley or the Panhandle of the State. Come August, we will be required to dial 208 or 986 in front of the seven digit numbers that we currently dial to reach anyone in the state. This is happening to accommodate Idaho’s growing population and increased cell phone usage.

IMPORTANT: To our customers who have auto-attendant directed calls to cells, phone systems connected to alarm platforms, multi-site networks and a lot of voice-mail services, it is very important that we start changing the dial programming now to be able to recognize area code 986 when it comes into use. If you have any questions, call our service folks at 208-884-4000. We’ll review your programming and help get things configured for the August switch-over.

Client and Friends

Gary Amoth is the good and gracious owner of Amoth Trucking. His group was selected to transport the “People’s (Christmas) Tree” from the Payette Forest to the US Capitol – a trip of over 4,000 miles with stops in 31 Cities. And this wasn’t like hauling a tree from a tree vendor to your house. The nearly 80’ spruce required 30+ gallons of water every day. On December 6th, the tree, decorated with over 18,000 handmade ornaments made in Idaho, will be lit. DataTel is very proud to provide communications tools for Amoth Trucking out of our Twin Falls Office. Randy Kerr, a Datatel Lead Technician, is good friends with Mr. Amoth. “Gary is just a great, great guy. He built his business from the ground up – a single truck that he drove himself.” Randy’s children joined the many well-wishers who signed the ‘Kenworth Christmas Card’ on its way to Washington, D.C. Being part of something so cool, even tangentially, makes us so very happy to be part of a great place and great people.

DataTel helps a Bird on a Mission

For many years, Kevin Miller of station KIDO has actively supported the work of the Boise Rescue Mission with his annual Miller’s Mission Program. His efforts has provided thousands of turkeys and other items to the Rescue Mission over the holiday season. DataTel brought in 11 birds and over $1,100 is cash for this great effort. Thank you, Kevin. Your service to others is awesome – as is your costume.

Meanwhile, the ladies of DataTel participated yet again with Shoebox Ministry – filling handcrafted boxes with age and gender appropriate gifts for the children of Canyon County Schools.
