prompt asking you to enter the 4-digit access code followed by the #

2. After entering the code, you are automatically connected into the
conference. You may announce yourself to the group at this point if

it's advisable to mute your line to ensure maximum clarity on the

volume level, press *4 again.

5. Rarely, a caller may experience long-distance connection
difficulties, such as a fast busy signal or message saying "All
circuits are busy" when dialing into the conference line. This problem
does not originate within the conferencing system. You may simply
re-dial the number to try to complete the call. If you have repeated
problems, try using any standard long-distance calling card.
Alternately, you may use one of the following dial-around sequences:

 1010636 + 1 + Area Code + Number (ClearChoice Communications - 5
cents per minute)
 1010834 + 1 + Area Code + Number (Penny Plan - 9 cents per minute)

This method will route your call through the alternate long-distance
carrier shown. The charges will appear on your local telephone bill.

6. We recommend that conference participants use normal land lines for
the call. Cellular phones, cordless phones, and Internet-based
telephone access may cause echoing, crackling, or other sound quality
degradation on the line.
