Dialing Instructions

You can dial your own station-to-station long distance calls without incurring operator surcharge, with Direct Distance Dialing (DDD). The key to placing DDD calls is the 3-digit Area Code of the location you are calling.

Station-To-Station Within the U.S.

Dial…………………………1 + Area Code + Telephone number

Station-To-Station International

Dial…………………………011 + Country Code + City Code + Telephone number

Long Distance Company Calls

For calls made to exchanges outside your local calling area, you must use another long distance company. Many different long distance companies offer their services to Oklatel. If you wish to change your chosen long distance company, you may do so by contacting the long distance company you prefer. There is a charge for changing long distance companies. You must contact the long distance company to establish an account.

You may access the long distance company you have selected simply by dialing “1” plus the telephone number or “0” plus the telephone number for any call to an exchange outside your local calling area. These calls may appear on your monthly telephone bill as your long distance company’s calls, or your long distance company may send you a separate bill for long distance calls. A list of long distance companies available to Oklatel customers may be obtained by contacting our business office. Questions regarding these companies’ rates and service can be obtained by contacting the long distance companies directly.

Using Other Long Distance Companies:

You may also make calls using a long distance company other that the one you have selected to handle your 1 + and 0 + calls by dialing the appropriate seven-digit access code (1010XXX) for that company. You must establish an account with each long distance company you wish to use. Each long distance company can supply you with its seven-digit access code.
