The international calls calling card dialog box was changed after Service Pack 4 to allow you to type information in individual steps instead of a single long string. This organizes the string for users, but limits the number of steps you can use when dialing international calls. This may cause a problem completing international calls using calling cards.
A supported fix is now available from Microsoft, but it is only intended to correct the problem that is described in this article.
