To use a calling card for long distance dialing

  1. Open Phone and Modem Options in Control Panel.

  2. On the Dialing Rules tab, click the location to modify, and then click Edit.

    To create a new location, click New.

  3. On the Calling Card tab, click the calling card you want to use.


  • To perform this procedure, you must be the user who created the calling card.

  • To open a Control Panel item, click Start, click Control Panel, and then double-click the appropriate icon.

  • If you use more than one calling card, you can create a different location for each one. Telephony programs typically allow you to change the location before dialing.

  • If you dial digits to access a long distance carrier (a long distance operator), you can use a calling card to specify the dialing sequence. When you create the calling card for a long distance carrier, create a unique location to go with it.

  • See Related Topics for procedures to create calling cards or locations.
