Priority Call Distinctive Ring
(a.k.a Personalized Ring in certain areas)
This feature will allow you to compose a list of numbers which will ring your line with a special distinctive ring pattern.

To activate & de-activate, dial:

*61 (or 1161 on a rotary phone) and follow the prompts.

Helpful Hints:

1. If you are using a rotary phone, you may want to review this guide as well.
2. In most areas, there is a limit of six (6) entries that can be added to this list. Digital Phone providers may have a higher limit which will vary depending on the company. Contact your service provider for assistance.
3. Your callers will not hear the distinctive ring pattern on their end. They will hear a normal ringing signal. Only you will hear the special ring pattern.
