LONG DISTANCE CALLING (Cont'd)



AREA CODES FOR SOME CITIES YOU CAN DIAL



types of calls:



STATION-TO-STATION

Make direct dial, station to station calls if you'll talk with anyone who
answers. Rates are lower than operator assisted calls and charging begins
when the called telephone is answered.

PERSON-TO-PERSON

Dial your own operator assisted, person-to-person calls when you wish to talk
with a particular person or extension number. An Operator will assist you in
completing the call. Rates are higher than for station-to-station calls and also
apply when you talk to an alternate person or extension. Charging starts
when conversation begins.

COLLECT CREDIT CARD AND CALLS CHARGED TO ANOTHER NUMBER

You can call "collect" if the person or firm you're calling agrees to pay the
charge. You can also charge long distance calls to your telephone credit card
or to another telephone number. Dial these operator assisted calls and an
operator will assist you in completing the call.

CONFERENCE

You can talk with several people in different places at the same time. Dial
"OPERATOR" and ask for the Conference Operator.

MOBILE AND MARINE SERVICE

You can make local and long distance calls to automobiles, trucks, aircraft,
trains, boats and ships. Ask the "OPERATOR" for the mobile, marine, or high
seas operator.

You may dial direct your calls to Hawaii, Alaska, Puerto Rico, U.S. Virgin
Islands, Canada, Bahamas, Bermuda and parts of Mexico, including Mexico
City. See Page 4 for the appropriate area codes. Call your operator for rates
to these locations.

Calls to practically all the world's telephones can be made from your
telephone. See Page 10 for instructions and dialing codes for some of the
countries and cities you can call. Call your operator for rates to these loca-
tions.

Station-to-station long distance calls may be made (without charge to you) to
customers who have Inward Wide Area Telephone Service. They offer this
service to their customers calling from specific areas. Dial "1" plus area code
"800", then the special number of customers having this service. To obtain
numbers of those customers who have "800" Service, dial "1" - then Area

CUSTOMER PROVIDED TELEPHONE EQUIPMENT and ancillary devices may be directly
connected to the company's lines only under certain conditions and according to the
Federal Communications Commission's rules and regulations.

DUAL NAME LISTINGS identify two different people with the same surname and persons

EMPLOYEE IDENTIFICATION CARDS are carried by all telephone people who visit your
home or place of business. These cards are issued for your protection and show their name,
photograph and signature.



INCORRECT DIRECTORY LISTINGS may occur occasionally due to the large number of
changes each year. If your listing in the directory is incorrect, it cannot be changed until
the next edition of the directory. In the meantime, we can make sure the listing is correct
in Directory Assistance records. In some cases it is possible for calls to an incorrect
number to be rerouted to the correct number. Please call your Service Representative if
there is an error in your listings.



INTERRUPTION OF SERVICE caused by accident, weather or other causes may occur. The
Company assumes no liability for these service interruptions. If service is interrupted for
nx)re than 48 hours, other than by the negligence or willful act of the customer, an al-
lowance at the minimum rate for the telephone facilities and class of service affected at
the time of the interruption shall b)e made for the time such interruption continues, after
notice and request to the Company. No other liability shall in any case attach to the Com-
pany on account of interruptions of service.



NUMBER CHANGES may be necessary on occasion to meet the needs and growth of an
area. While the Company reserves the right to make necessary changes, every effort will be
made to avoid customer inconvenience.



OBSCENE OR HARASSING CALLS are prohibited by federal and state laws. A person who
makes or permits such calls to be made over a telephone under his control may be fined or
imprisoned or both.

ALABAMA LAW prohibits the following acts under penalty of imprisonment or
fine or both:

(1) To fail to relinquish a telephone party line after having been requested to
do so, to permit another to place a call in an emergency in which property or
human life are in jeopardy and the prompt summoning of aid is essential, to a
fire or police department or for medical aid or ambulance service. Provided
however, such party line at the time of request is not being used for any such
other emergency call.

(2) To request the use of such party line by falsely stating that the same is
needed for any of said purposes, knowing said statement to be false.

(3) To telephone another person and address to or about such other person
any lewd, lascivious or indecent words or language; or to telephone another
person repeatedly for the purpose of annoying, molesting or harassing such
