    Hi to everyone, i know this is a stupid question, but i really can't find an answer, so please help on this one.
    Soon i will be on travel with my Pismo PowerBook loaded with Mac OS X 10.2.8, i will need to contact through prepaid phone cards, but i really don't knw how to set up them. I google it, search the Apple Care database and even a couple of sites, but i have nothing. I know, some of you will be feel i am stealing his or her time, but i just don't know where else to search.
    Thanks in Advance.

    I'm not at my iBook atm, but usually what you do is you put the calling card number in as a "prefix" -- there should be a blank for what you want dialed before you dial the number. You enter the calling card 800 or 888 number plus the code etc -- everything you'd dial before you get to dialing the actual target phone number.

    At least this is the way I've done it in the past.

    It may take some trials -- I'd suggest turning on modem speaker echo (I think you can do this on Macs?) And you may need to enter a pause character of some kind, usually the letter 'p' or 'w'. But then it should dial the calling card first, and then dial your number.
