    Sometimes I have to use the Fax option as I have to send copies of
    documentation to people within my local calling area (right now there are 3
    area codes within my local calling area with more to be added in the near
    future). One of the problems I've encountered on all Windows OS's (including
    Vista), is when I use the imbedded software provided, and I have to dial a
    10-digit number, 9 times out of 10, the system will dial a "1" as a prefix
    even if the number is within the local area (meaning all you need to dial is
    10 digits). I'm suggesting that an option be added to the dialing locations
    to exclude the "1". In other words a "No Prefix" option for included area
    codes. I've retired from Nortel-Networks after 24 years, and on all our
    systems, we included options to where the customer could setup the dialing
    prefixes. This would eliminate the "headache" of trying to figure out how to
    make the system NOT dial a "1" on a 10-digit local area number.

    Can you just NOT use the dialing properties and program in exact phone
    numbers? If a particular number needs a 1 just enter that as part of the
    phone number.
