When I try to make a call, a recorded voice tells me that the number I dialed doesn't accept anonymous calls.
How to Solve this Problem
If your call is rejected, hang up. When you dial again, listen for dial tone and dial 118 before placing the call as you normally would. Your campus telephone number will be displayed to the party you are dialing, and your call will not be blocked by anonymous call rejection on their line. For example, to call local number 257 - 5555, listen for dial tone, then dial 118 - 9 - 257 - 5555.
