TYPES OF CALLS

STATION

Dial a station call direct if you’ll talk with anyone who answers. Charging starts when the called telephone is answered. Rates are lowest for Unassisted Station Calls. If you require charges quoted for special billing arrangements, (collect, credit, etc.), Operator Assisted rates apply.

PERSON TO PERSON

A person call is when you wish to reach a particular person or extension. Charging starts when conversation begins with the extension phone, the person called or anyone else agreed upon. Rates are highest for Operator Assisted Person to Person Calls.

COIN CALLS

From coin phones, see the instruction card on or near the phone, or dial the “OPERATOR”. Not all paystations serving our area are Siskiyou Telephone’s property. Consult the instructions before calling or reporting trouble.

COLLECT, CALLING CARD AND CALLS CHARGED TO ANOTHER NUMBER

Call collect if the person or firm you are calling agrees to pay the charge. You can also bill calls to your calling card or to another number. Operator Assisted Call rates apply.

MOBILE AND MARINE CALLS

You can make calls to autos, trucks, trains, aircraft and boats equipped for telephone service. Dial the Operator and ask for the Mobile Service Operator or the Marine Operator unless you’ve been instructed otherwise.

CALLS TO OTHER COUNTRIES

Calls to most of the world’s telephones can be made from your phone. Dial the Operator and give the name of the country you wish to call. Rates and reduced rate periods on calls to other countries differ from those on calls to U.S. points.

TOLL FREE CALLS

You can call free to phone numbers that are preceded by Zenith, Enterprise or the Area Code 800, 833, 844, 855, 866, 877 or 888. Dial the Operator and ask for Zenith, or Enterprise numbers. Dial numbers direct that are preceded by Area Code 800, 833, 844, 855, 866, 877 or 888.


PROTECT PRIVACY with 800, 833, 844, 855, 866, 877, 888 and 900 Numbers

When you call 800, 833, 844, 855, 866, 877, 888 and 900 numbers, the company you’re calling may receive your phone number. Because those numbers may use a Federal Communications Commission-regulated technology called Automatic Number Identification (ANI), there’s no way to prevent your number from being identified during these calls.


If you want to keep your number private, use a company’s regular toll number instead of the toll-free number or call from a payphone. If you do use a toll-free number, you can ask that your number not be given to phone solicitors.
