To modify an existing calling card

  1. Open Phone and Modem Options in Control Panel.

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

  3. On the Calling Card tab, click the card type you want to modify, and then click Edit.

  4. Click the General tab to change the calling card name, number, or your personal identification number (PIN).

  5. Click the Long Distance, International, or Local Calls tab to change the access number or dialing steps for the corresponding type of call.


  • When you enter a calling card PIN number, this number is displayed in plaintext. Therefore, to enhance security, type this number in a private location whenever possible. If you are not in a private location, take care to ensure that this number is not exposed to another user.


  • To perform this procedure, you must be the user who created the calling card. A calling card that is created by one user cannot be modified by a different user.

  • To open a Control Panel item, click Start, 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.

Information about functional differences

  • Your server might function differently based on the version and edition of the operating system that is installed, your account permissions, and your menu settings. For more information, see Viewing Help on the Web.
