How to Determine Local Calling Area from JSU Campus
With the rapid addition of new area codes and telephone prefixes, it's getting harder to tell if a number is a local call for you or a toll call. The rapid increase of cell phone utilization has made this even more complicated. More and more people are dialing phone numbers that they think are local, only find out later—when they receive their bill—that they were toll calls.
If you'd like to avoid these "surprises" on your phone bill, you need to know before you place a call if it is a local or toll call for you.
Telephone Services has compiled the telephone exchanges under the local area codes for
five local communities in the University's calling area.
A telephone call made from any JSU campus telephone on the main campus to a
McClellan campus local calling area is charged as a local call. Calls made
to the JSU-Gadsden campus are billed as long distance charges.
Telephone calls made from JSU campus non-student telephones to a local calling area number are charged for a local call. There is no charge for telephone calls made from
JSU campus student telephones to a local calling area number.
If you are a customer calling from JSU, your Local Area Calling includes the communities of Anniston, Ohatchee, Oxford, and Piedmont
in addition to the Jacksonville community. Telephone numbers beginning with the following prefixes listed below
corresponding to each of the communities
considered to be in Jacksonville's Local Area Calling--including prefixes for cell phone numbers--all
qualify as being in
the University's local calling area.
