Making Calls explains how to call internally and externally. If you are having trouble making a call, it may be because your phone is restricted. Every phone on campus is assigned a service level which may restrict calls to internal, local or domestic long distance. Only full service phones may call internationally. In offices, service levels are set by the school administrative officer or by the administrative manager. In apartments, you selected a service level before you arrived. You may wish to read Service Requests which explains how to change them.
Report your problem to . Most trouble reports are addressed by the end of the next business day. Further methods for requesting service or asking general questions may be found in Making a Service Request.
Can I plug in a fax machine or modem in my apartment?
Yes. The same jack that your apartment phone uses supports fax and modem devices. You may purchase a splitter at any computer or telephone store to enable you to plug in both your telephone and fax or modem at the same time. You will only be able to use one device at a time, however.
Unfortunately, the Institute is unable to provide calling cards for apartment phones where the financial responsibility for the calls lies with the caller, not the Institute. Long distance carriers may allow you to use credit cards or debit cards, but typically they want a "subscriber" telephone number before they will provide a calling card. Since your apartment telephone number is really an Institute telephone number, it will not be accepted as a subscriber number. One alternative is to purchase pre-paid calling cards. These are available at many locations, including some local convenience stores.
Corporate calling cards, billed directly to the Institute, are available for Faculty only. With the permission of the Associate Director, corporate calling cards are also available for administrative managers with a demonstrated need. Contact for more information.
On your office phone: You can use the Redial feature to call the last number dialed again. Just press a free extension key twice. See the telephone Reference Guide for more information on using your phone.
I just want to leave a message, not talk to anyone. What is express messaging?
Normally, when you call someone, you must wait for their phone to ring and if they don't answer, your call will be handled by Voice Mail. With express messaging, your call is sent directly to Voice Mail. You call 8011 from on campus or (609) 734-8011 from off campus to reach express messaging. You will be prompted for a mailbox and then you may leave a message for that mailbox. Voice Mail provides more information on all aspects of voice mail.
