Types of Long Distance Calls

  • Station to Station
    Direct Distance Dialed (DDD) calls are station-to-station. Call station-to-station if you wish to talk with anyone who answers. Rates are lower than for person-to-person calls and charging begins when the telephone you've called is answered.

    Person to Person (Dial Operator)
  • Call person-to-person when you wish to talk with a particular person or extension. Tell the Operator you wish to make a "person-to-person" call and give the Area Code for the city you want, the telephone number, and the name of the person you are calling. Rates are higher than for station-to-station calls. Charging starts when conversation begins with the person you've called.

  • Marine and Overseas Service (Dial Operator)
    You can make Local and Long Distance calls to trains, aircraft and boats equipped for telephone service. Ask the Operator for the Marine or High Seas Operator. Give the operator the name of the country you're calling.
