Price: $1.00 per successful trace
Call trace (per call) allows you to trace the origin of a harassing or obscene call. Information generated from the trace is printed at the telephone company. Upon request to the telephone company, the traced call information will be released to the proper authorities.
How to Use
- When you get a nuisance call, just depress the switchhook and release. Listen for a normal dial tone.
- Press *57. On a rotary dial phone, dial 1157.
- Listen for a confirmation announcement that the last call has been traced.
- Hang up.
The number you trace will be recorded at the telephone company. Recorded information will be released to the proper authorities upon your request.
Customer Originated Trace must be used immediately after you hang up on the call you want to be traced. If you get another call, or hear a Call Waiting tone first, you will trace the wrong call. Call Trace will not work from calls originating from locations that do not provide the service, such as some toll free numbers, 900 and 700 numbers, international calls and some cellular areas.
