Long distance calls may be conveniently billed to your TELUS calling card when you are away from your home phone. Just provide your calling card number to the TRS operator.
Long distance calls can be billed to the recipient's number if the person answering the telephone authorizes the charge. Just request a collect call and give the TRS operator your name and the number you are calling.
You may also charge your long distance call to a third number – either your own (if you are not calling from your own number at the time), or another number willing to accept the charges. Just request 'bill to third number' and give the TRS operator the number you would like to bill the call to, the number you are calling, and your name. The operator will then call to see if someone at that number will accept the charges.
You can request a person-to-person call to have the long distance charges commence only when the person you have asked to speak with is on the line. Note: this type of long distance call is more expensive.
