KB #9354 - The same area code should be used for local calls as well as for long distance calls
Configure ActFax to use the same area code for local calls as well as for long distance calls.
Especially in the USA and Canada it is often required that numbers of a certain area code need to be dialed as local calls and also as long distance calls. Since ActFax strips the local area code for all numbers of the local area, a special configuration is required in that case. In the following sections you can find examples for such configurations.
Example 1: Use the same area code for local calls as well as for long distance callsYour local area code 311 is used for local calls as well as for long distance calls. All numbers that start with '311-1', '311-2' and '311-38' should be dialed as long distance calls. All other numbers should be dialed as a normal local call:
Example 2: Use more than one local area codeThe area codes 311, 312 and 318 all belong to your local area. ActFax should dial the full (10-digit) number for all numbers of these area codes (the area code is not stripped in that case):
