To call non college phones you need to dial the full phone number preceded by a “9”. Example: 9-206-123-4567

Special Fax Instructions:

 

Dialing long distance and international fax numbers is the same as explained above but with one exception. On most fax machines it is necessary to add a “pause” between the phone number and the LD code. In some cases, more than one pause may be needed especially when faxing to international numbers. Most fax machines have a “Pause” button on or near the dialpad or on the screen.

Example: 91-509-123-4567-pause-LDcode

Note: If you program speed dial numbers on your fax machine you need to remember to include the pauses. For speed dial programming you may also need a pause after the initial “9”.
