What are Operator Assisted phone calls?

    An Operator Assisted Call is one in which the calling party places a telephone call which requires an operator to provide some form of assistance in completing the call. Operator Assisted Calls are more expensive than direct dial calls. ''Direct dial'' is a telecommunications term for a network provided service in which a call originator may, WITHOUT operator assistance, call any other user. Operator Assisted Calls may include the following telephone services:

  1. Collect: The calling party wants to place a call at the called party's expense.
  2. Third Number Calls: Calls can be billed to the party other than the calling and called party.
  3. Person-to-Person: Method of placing a telephone call in which the calling party wants to speak to a specific person and not simply to anyone who answers. The caller is not charged for the call unless the requested party can be reached.
  4. Station-to-Station: Method of placing a telephone call in which the calling party agrees to talk to whoever answers the telephone.

Why can't I dial 1-900 numbers?

    For your safety, we restrict access from your phone to numbers that begin with the area code 900. The 900 area code is commonly used by entertainment or Informational services that can carry considerable per-call or by-the-minute charges. However, be aware that it may be possible to dial around blocks by dialing a regular long distance phone number, 800 access numbers, or an international toll number to another country.
