Custom Calling Features (CCF): Speed Calling, Short List (SCS)

This feature permits you access to a programmed list of frequently called numbers by dialing a single-digit address instead of the complete number. The Short List consists of ten telephone numbers with addresses 0 through 9 which are limited to your exclusive use.

Speed Calling, Short List: Programming a Number
What You Do What You Hear
1) Lift the handset from the cradle. Dial Tone
2) Dial the Speed Calling, Short List programming code "74". Stutter Dial Tone
3) Dial the single-digit address (0-9) by which you wish the number to be stored and identified.
4) Dial the number to be stored exactly as you would normally dial it (see Notes below).
5) Press "#" (tone dial telephone), or wait 10 seconds (rotary dial telephone). Confirmation Tone
6) Replace the handset in the cradle.
7) Repeat steps 1 through 6 to store up to 10 numbers.

Notes

  • For a local number be sure to store the "9" in your list. FOR EXAMPLE: 9 4982222.

  • For a long distance number, use asterisks "*" to store a pause for the tones after the 8 and after the authorization code. FOR EXAMPLE: 8 * 111111 * 8175552323.

  • Although you can store your long distance authorization code in your Short List with the long distance number, it is not recommended since anyone knowing the speed number may use your telephone to charge calls to your account. Telephone Services recommends using the CHAIN DIAL method. (See CHAIN DIALING.)
