Access is free in local calling areas where NoCharge service is provided.

Before choosing a dialup connection number, please check with your local phone company to make sure the number you are dialing is in fact a local call. If the number is not in your local dialing area you could incur long distance charges. In some cases no additional numbers are necessary to dial a long distance number; checking with your phone company prior to connection is advised.
