The information in this article applies to:

  • Microsoft NetMeeting version 2.0 for Windows NT 4.0

SUMMARY

This article describes how to connect using 10-digit dialing in NetMeeting.

10-digit dialing is a method for dialing a telephone number with a different area code from your own as a local number. This may be necessary in areas in which you must dial the area code even for a local call.

MORE INFORMATION

To cause NetMeeting to dial a telephone number with a different area code as a local number, follow these steps:

  1. In NetMeeting, click Call.
  2. In the Address box, type the number you want to dial. Use the following format:

          +1 (<your area code>) <area code you are dialing> <phone number>

    For example: +1(972)214-555-1212

    You can also type your local area code in the Area Code box in Dialing properties, or by typing the telephone number you want to dial [including +1 (<area code>)] when you first create the connection.

Windows 95 is designed to add a "1" before a telephone number that has a different area code from your default area code so that you do not need to add it manually. Some states and countries have telephone numbers that are in different area codes but are not long distance calls. Callers in these areas can make calls to some other area codes as a local call.
