3 General Information Thank you for ordering Advanced Calling Services. You will soon discover that these services offer you convenience, time savings and greater control in the use of your telephone. This guide will allow you to begin enjoying the many benefits of your Advanced Calling Services. During conversations many services can only be used by first depressing the switchhook/flash button. To do this, depress the switchhook/flash button quickly, then release it within a half second. Caution: If you hold the switchhook/flash button down too long, your call will be disconnected. Notes: IN ORDER FOR THE ADVANCED CALLING SERVICES TO WORK, BOTH THE CALLING PARTY AND THE CALLED PARTY MUST BE IN AN AREA WHERE THE SERVICES ARE AVAILABLE. THESE SERVIC- ES ARE NOT AVAILABLE IN ALL AREAS. If you attempt to use one of your Advanced Calling Services with a number outside the area served by Advanced Calling, you will hear an announcement telling you that the service cannot be used with that particular number. Some services instruct you to use the # button. If you have a rotary or pulse dial telephone, you can ignore the # button and wait four seconds for your service request. When certain features are activated, you may hear a distinctive dial tone. This is a high-pitched tone which reminds you that a feature you have activated is still in operation. Some of the Advanced Calling Services require you to press the * button. If you have a rotary phone, dial 1 1 instead of the *. This only applies to the first * in the dialing sequence for a service. Some of the Advanced Calling Services require you to program lists of phone numbers. You must set up these lists prior to using the services. Please refer to the instructions in this guide to program the lists. For many of the Advanced Calling Services, voice instructions will guide you through the various procedures and simplify their operation.
