Telephone Service (Retirement in Progress)

Custom Calling Features (CCF): Last-Number Redial (LNR)

This feature allows you to redial the last number called from a telephone by using a special code. The LAST NUMBER REDIAL feature is useful when redialing a number which was busy or was not answered. Each time a new number is dialed it is automatically stored and becomes the number to be redialed when using this feature from that line.

To use LAST NUMBER REDIAL, dial the activation code "*71" or "# #". Your phone will automatically dial the last telephone number called from your phone.


  • LAST NUMBER REDIAL can be used for long distance calls; however, you must first redial the 8 and your authorization code. At the second dial tone, dial "*71" to dial the telephone number.

  • LAST NUMBER REDIAL will remember the number if you used a SPEED CALL CODE to dial it; however, it will not redial the pauses, the authorization code and a long distance number as above. Use the SPEED CALL CODE again, or redial the 8, your authorization code and then "*71".

  • If you hear a busy signal after dialing a campus telephone number use RING AGAIN to cause the system to automatically call you back when the line becomes free. See RING AGAIN.
