Star Codes for Telephone Features – Revisited!

TouchTone Telephones Bring Happiness to Families WorldWideTrying to remember all the * (STAR) codes for using the various features of your phone services?

Everyonce in ahile they can drive you crazy, so I found this list over at BellSouth today, and it’s the best I’ve ever seen. NOte that some telephone networks may use alternate dialing codes than these, however these are the “official” StarCodes of the AT&T Bell System (as an International Standard).

Remember, you can quite often save lots on your traditional telephone service if you have broadband cable access in your home. By picking up a (usually) free router with either Vonage, Packet 8, Lingo or another VOIP based service built-in, then you can connect traditional telephones with the same number you already have, and tons more features, free long distance (with Lingo, you can call the US, Canada, Mexico and UK for FREE!).

Do you have other links and resources to share, please do!

    Thanks for the star codes – easier to find than ATT site.

    A most distress day for me: the *78 was accidently entered and little help from ATT and since this command is new – you do not have it. the cancel command or deactivate is *79#

    Thanks for web page.
