Chapter 3. Telephone Usage > Domestic Long Distance Calls

Domestic Long Distance Calls

There are a variety of domestic long distance services available, ranging from direct dialing to calling cards.

Domestic Direct Dialing

When you are willing to speak with anyone who may answer, dial the number yourself. Charges for the call begin as soon as an answer is heard, including an answering machine. Long distance calls within your area code are usually dialed as 1 + seven-digit number; however, many telephone service providers now require dialing the area code. In fact, in many large cities, you must dial the area code to make a local call. Long distance calls outside your area code are dialed as 1 + area code + seven-digit number.
