15 ¢ per minute

Can transfer existing 800 number to our service without changing the numbers.

Per-line or per-call blocking does not prevent transmission of your telephone number when you can call a company using an 800, 888, or 900 number. Therefore, your number may be available to that company’s service representative before your call is answered.

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 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.

Having trouble receiving long distance calls?
Has anyone had trouble calling you in recent days? If so, rest assured you are not the only one. This trouble seems to be happening far too often across the entire nation. So, what’s the problem?

Advanced networks which are used to carry the majority of calls between large cities can sometimes create software interconnection issues that could affect call routing, especially if the advanced networks do not have their own directly connected circuits but hand off to another long distance carrier. This scenario, unfortunately, is prevalent and most common to rural areas. Because the call never reaches the called party’s network, there is not an opportunity to look at the call path and make any kind of resolution from the called end.

The FCC is aware of this issue and has demanded carriers have a network in place that can handle all calls with quality. Also, the FCC is trying to collect information as to which carriers have problems and when call completion issues arise. If this situation does happen, you can file a customer complaint report here or call the FCC at 1-888-225-5322.

Completing the report or making the phone call to the FCC is best when made by the calling party (individual who placed the call). However, either the calling or called person(s) may file the complaint so long as the long distance carrier of the calling party is known.
