    I'm trying yo use a calling card to connect to MSN
    but it pays no attention to my calling card properties
    for long distance dialing, it just dials the MSN acess number.
    their tech. support is no help. I connect to JUNO this way and it works just fine. I'm running Windows Me.

    Hiya and welcome

    When you say calling card, what do you mean? being in the UK, I have to get used to some of the american terms, and I know most now :p

    Is this what you are trying to do?

    When you try to dial a 10-digit number (the telephone number plus the area code), Windows ignores the area code specified if it matches your local area code

    If so,


    Ah, is it a pocket PC?


    This is for MSN messenger:


    and email:

    A calling card redirects phone charges. Some calling cards are prepaid, and you have to dial a special phone number, enter the calling card number, and then enter the number you want to call. Other calling cards allow you to use them at places other than your home such as in a hotel, and the long distance charges are charged to you through your regular home phone bill.
