Individual Account Codes for Long Distance Phone Service

Overview

An Individual Account Code (IAC) for Long Distance Phone Service (also known as Authorization Codes) allows the Facility Restriction Levels (FRL) of a phone to be temporarily overridden so that long distance calls may be placed from a phone that is normally restricted. IACs are issued to individuals within a department. When your Individual Account Code is used for a call, charges for the call are billed to it, rather than to the phone. Individual Account Codes are useful for areas where several individuals may be using the same telephone line to place long distance calls and desire accountability as to who placed the call; or in areas where the telephone cannot be secured from unauthorized use. On a phone restricted from long-distance dialing, dial in the number you would like to call, wait for the secondary stutter dial tone (beep beep beep) and then enter the 5 digit Individual Account Code to complete the call.
