Are you receiving an error?
Have you confirmed it's dialing the 1+areacode+ number? Could be your area code rules are not set up properly.

Can you dial ok with a phone long distance? Check to make sure you have no conflicts with your ld carrier and check for stuff like maybe your long distance is protected (need a code to dial) or whatever. You would probably know if you had the last thing but I'm just trying to help out and give ideas. It could be hardware problems but you might want to try checking their end of the line if you are still having problems.

Dialing properties are in Control Panel, Modem - there is a button called dialing properties. Look in there to make sure your area code is correct and it is set to dial long distance.

Then make sure the program you are trying to dial with is set to dial all the digits - it may think the call is local, in which case it will never send the area code to the modem.
