Dialing with a Calling Card
If you chose to set up a calling card account with an alternate vendor for your long distance calls, you CANNOT use a Keene State College telephone number as your billing number. You need to ask for a Direct Billed Account to which all charges are billed directly to your name and address, not to your telephone number. Keene State College cannot be the responsible billing party. If charges appear on the Keene College Long Distance Bill relative to your calling card, you will be billed for the calls and you will be charged a $15 processing fee.

Dial 5 and the 800 number for the service you are using e.g. 5-1-800-225-5288 (AT&T)

Dialing Directory Assistance
$1.25 for local directory assistance and $1.99 for long distance
Be Aware: using a Calling Card to dial DA has been known to cost as much as $5.00 per call!!

Why not try one of the Internet Directories instead!

Personal Billing Number (PBN)

A PBN (formerly called the authorization code) allows you to make billable calls from any phone on campus and have the calls charged to your department. DO NOT LEND YOUR PBN TO, OR SHARE YOUR PBN WITH, ANYONE. THIS INCLUDES YOUR FRIENDS, Co-WORKERS and PEERS. Keep this number confidential at all times! You are responsible for ALL calls made with your PBN.
