This guide is intended to be used as a handy reference for Traditional Landline Calling Features. Some features are not available in all areas.

Note: Unless you have the feature included in your phone plan, there may be a charge by your telephone company for the use of these features. To find out the cost, or to get the feature included, please contact your telephone company's business office. (this number can usually be found in the front of your telephone directory or you can ask your operator).

Here you will find a handy and easy to use reference to using Landline Calling & Verticle Service Code Features.

A lot of time and effort has been put into this website to make it easy for you to obtain information about how to use the features on your telephone.

I can not stress this enough, Check with your phone company to make sure you have the feature before you use it!!!  Pay-per-use rates are VERY expensive (between 2 and 8 dollars on average). It is usually cheaper to purchase the feature individually, or bundle it in a phone plan. I am not responsible for your bill if you get any extra charges as a result of this feature guide. 

Caller-ID is a subscription though your phone company that requires compatible equipment, call your telephone company business office for more information. I did not make a page for Caller-ID because this comment should be enough to describe it.

Some features are not available in all areas, and some will not work at all unless you subscribe to them! Also, some telephone companies may use non-standard usage codes (not listed here). Please make note this and call your telephone company before complaining to me about something in one of my guides not working.

If you know of a calling feature that I have not listed, I WANT TO KNOW!!!!
