Speed Calling

Now you can call emergency or frequently dialed numbers simply by dialing one or two digits. This speed calling capability includes long distance telephone numbers.
You have a choice of selecting either a short list of eight telephone numbers (Speed Calling 8) or a longer list of thirty telephone numbers (Speed Calling 30). If you have selected Speed Calling 8, but want to be able to speed call more numbers, just call us and let us know. We’ll change your service to Speed Calling 30 quickly.

To Enter or Change Your Speed Calling 8 List

  • Dial 7-4-# (on rotary dial phones, dial 7-4 and wait four seconds).
  • Listen for the dial tone.
  • Dial one of the 8 one-digit speed-numbers (2 – 9).

  • Press the # button (on rotary dial phones, omit this step and wait four seconds).
