If you are having difficulty calling long distance from on campus, your phone may not be set up to make long distance calls, or the area code is so new that it is not yet programmed into the Behrend switch.  In such a case, call the Switchboard Operator.

NO long distance calls can be placed from any on-campus resident phone; calling cards must be used, unless it is a toll-free number.
