If you cannot complete a toll call by dialing direct on our Qwest network, you may try dialing around to the AT&T network (9 + 1010 + 288 + 1+ area code + 7-digit number), but save this as a last resort as these calls are very expensive! Qwest and AT&T are the only long distance choices available without using a calling card.
Get free directory listings online at www.anywho.com, www.whitepages.com, and www.switchboard.com, or by dialing (800) 373-3411. As a last resort, dial 9 + 411 for billable directory listings from Verizon National 411.
