Custom Calling Features (CCF): Chain Dialing Numbers From a Speed Calling List

You may "chain" speed calling numbers, combining for example, your authorization code from your own short list, and a long distance number from your short list or from a departmental long list. For security reasons, we strongly suggest that you hand dial your authorization number and then use a speed code to dial the long distance number as shown below. Speed codes can also be used to activate features such as DIRECTED CALL PICKUP or CALL FORWARD ALL CALLS.

What You Do What You Hear
1) Dial "8". Stutter Dial Tone
2) Dial your authorization code. Confirmation Tone
3) If you have a tone dial telephone dial "*", the one- or two-digit address assigned to your stored long distance number, then "#". Ringing
OR
3) If you have a rotary dial telephone dial "71", the one- or two-digit address assigned to your stored long distance number and wait 10 seconds. Ringing
