REMINDER: "9" is no longer required to place outside calls.

As announced in the December newsletter, dialed phone numbers that start with "9" will no longer route to any destination (with the exception of 911, of course). This change is being phased in, and all phones will be reprogrammed by July 1, 2014. Please get into the habit of dialing external numbers simply starting with "1", i.e., 1847xxxxxxx

Additionally, the same rules apply if you forward your desk phone to your cell phone, or if you use speed dials. As a convenience to you, any existing speed dials you had on your phone(s) as of May 1st have already been stripped of the "9" prefix in the system.

Don't hesitate to contact Sebastian at x3964 with any questions.
