How to program your phone for callback

For US residents with 800 number access

You program two of your phone memory keys, as follows:
key #1: 1 800 xxx xxxx [pause} [pause] where xxx xxxx is the access number you will receive after you sign up, and [pause] is one press of your phone's pause button
Key#2: xxxx xxxxx xxxx where xxxxx xxxxx xxxxx is your secret authorization code
to make a phone call you press Key#1, key#2, followed by the number you want to dial

For US residents or non-US residents with callback service

You program one of your phone memory keys, as follows:
key #1: x xxx xxx xxxx where xxx xxxx is the callback trigger number you will receive after you sign up
to make a phone call you press Key#1 followed by the number you want to dial (non-US residents must dial the same area codes and country codes as if they were located in the US)

 

For non-US residents with callback service from countries with pulse dialing

You need a modern phone capable of tone dialing. Most fax machines can do this. Search for a tiny button on the side or below the phone that says tone/pulse. Then see if on your dialing keypad a button (usually the "#" button is marked "tone").
You program one of your phone memory keys, as follows:
key #1: x xxx xxx xxxx where xxx xxxx is the callback trigger number you will receive after you sign up
to make a phone call you press Key#1. Hang up. Either you quickly switch the button to "tone", or you dial the "tone" button # after you get your callback in a few seconds. After you get the callback dial the number you want to dial (non-US residents must dial the same area codes and country codes as if they were located in the US)
