COLLECT CALLS You may call
collect to parties outside of the Republic of Palau if the person or firm you are
calling agrees to accept the charges. When the operator comes on the line, say you
are placing a collect call and give your name. The operator will inform you to go
ahead if the other party agrees. (Currently,
it is not passible to accept incoming
collect calls from outside of Palau.)
The following countries/areas are authorized for collect calls from Palau: Saipan
(CNMI) and the U.S. Mainland.
• To place a collect call to the U.S. Mainland, dial 02222.
• For collect calls to Saipan (CNMI), dial “0”.
• If you need help, dial “0” for assistance.
GENERAL INFORMATION Overseas calls may be placed with the assistance
of an operator. Operator-assisted calls are station-to-station and person-to-person
calls. If you wish to obtain the length of time you talked and applicable charges
after the call is completed, you must notify the operator before placing the call.
If you have a bad connection, get a wrong number, or are cut off during your call:
please hang up; call the operator; explain the problem; and the operator will assist
STATION-TO-STATION These are calls in which the caller will speak
with anyone who answers the phone, including recordings on answering machines. Charging
begins the moment the called
telephone is answered.
PERSON-TO-PERSON These are calls in which the caller wishes to
speak to a particular person. When the operator comes on the line, say that you
are placing a person-to-person call and give the name of the person to whom you
wish to speak. The operator will ask for your particular party and charges do not
begin until you have started talking to that person. These calls may be more expensive
than station-to-station calls.Person-to-person charges also apply if your party
was not available and you decided to speak with anyone at that number.
