History Log

Product Description

Pay Per Call Restriction will block:

  • Directly-dialed 1+ and 0+ intra Local Access and Transport Area (intraLATA) Information Delivery Service (IDS) (976)
  • All intraLATA/inter Local Access and Transport Area (interLATA) 900 Service calls
  • 976 Network -CenturyLink IntraLATA (Available only in AZ, CO, UT)
  • 900 Network -Carrier InterLATA

Pay Per Call Restriction will not restrict:

  • InterLATA 976 IDS calls terminating outside CenturyLink region
  • The calls may or may not be restricted depending on the restriction policy of the serving telephone company

When end-users dial a 976 or 900 number from a restricted line, the call will be diverted to the Company-provided intercept announcement: "I'm sorry, your call cannot be completed as dialed."

Pay Per Call Restriction is not required for the following types and classes of calls/services because access is not permitted to 976/900:

  • Third number billed, collect and calling card calls, except:
    • OR Only - 976 third number and calling card calls are allowed.
    • WA Only - 976 calling card calls are allowed.
    • WA & OR Only - 900 number calls cannot be billed to a CenturyLink Calling Card.
  • Public and semi-public coin service; coinless public telephone service, charge-a-call gold telephones and universal telephone.
  • Long distance denied or restricted lines.
  • Hotel/motel and hospital service lines that are routed to special operator equipped locations.
  • Wide Area Telephone Service (WATS) access lines.
  • Feature Group A, B, C and D access lines.

Availability

Pay Per Call Restriction is offered only where Central Office facilities permit; all electronically switched central offices permit Pay Per Call Restriction.

Pay Per Call Restriction is a per line service.

In DMS™-100 office, Pay Per Call Restriction must be established on all lines in a Multi-Line Hunting group in order for the provisioning to work.

AZ, MN only - Due to commission requirements, non-electronically switched central offices that cannot offer Pay Per Call Restriction are entirely restricted from IDS calling. This requirement does not apply to 900 Service; therefore non-electronically switched central office end-users do have access to 900 Service but without the availability of Pay Per Call Restriction.
