calling card

Open Phone and Modem Options in Control Panel.
On the Dialing Rules tab, click the location to modify, and then click Edit.
To create a new location, click New.

On the Calling Card tab, click New.
On the General tab, enter the following: Value Description
Calling card name The name you use to identify the card.
Account number The account number provided by the calling card company for the calling card. For some calling cards this is the home or business phone number associated with the account.
Personal Identification Number (PIN) Any personal number required to secure your account against unauthorized use. Often a four digit number, this is usually dialed after the account number when you place a call. Some calling cards do not use a PIN.

Perform the following steps on the Long Distance, International, and Local Calls tabs to specify dialing rules for each type of call.
On each tab, type the phone number required to access the corresponding service. Include all the digits dialed after you access an outside line.
On the Long Distance tab, Long distance calls access number is the phone number to access the calling card service for domestic long distance calls.
On the International tab, International calls access number is the phone number to access the calling card service for international long distance calls.
On the Local Calls tab, Local calls access number is the phone number to access the calling card service for local calls. Leave this blank to dial local numbers without using the calling card.
Under Calling card dialing steps, click the buttons to add the steps required to complete a call. Click To dial
Access number The number to access the calling card company. This will dial the access number entered at the top of the tab.
Account Number The account number that identifies your account, which was entered on the General tab.
PIN Your personal identification number which was entered on the General tab, usually dialed immediately after the account number.
Wait for Prompt Pauses dialing for a dial tone, voice message, or time interval.
Destination Number The country/region code, area code, and phone number.
Specify Digits Any sequence of the digits 0-9, *, and #.

To reposition any step in the order, click the step and then click Move Up or Move Down.
To remove the step, click Delete.

 Notes

To open a Control Panel item, click Start, point to Settings, click Control Panel, and then double-click the appropriate icon.
If you add Access Number, PIN, or Account Number to the Calling card dialing steps and the corresponding field is blank, the program will prompt you to enter the missing value when you click OK or Apply.
