How to Make a Collect Call

Save

Collect calls are ideal for when you're stranded and out of change ... or for when you just don't want to pay for your own phone calls.

  • Pick up the receiver, listen for the dial tone, then dial "0" followed by the area code and phone number of the person or place you are trying to reach.

  • Listen for a tone followed by recorded instructions about making a collect call.

  • Speak your name when prompted.

  • Alternatively, talk to an operator. Pick up the receiver, dial "0," then inform the operator that you would like to place a collect call. Follow his or her instructions.

Tips & Warnings

  • Use the area code even if the call is local.
  • Some phone companies offer alternatives to dialing "0" to make a collect call.
