i know this is like a slam of messages about the issue. For that, I apologize.

But I have another question. My understanding of this process is that when it works correctly, I won’t need to dial an area code to local numbers that are in a different area code.

If that’s not true, then can you correct my thinking as to what specifically this area code rule will do?

What I need is soley for win fax to no dial the “1” but to dial the area code. In the 913 area code, we must dial 816 to call people in Kansas City, Missouri, but if there’s a “1” in front, the call/fax will not go through.

I think I’m just getting frazzled by the whole thing. I truly appreciate your help with this. I just wish it wasn’t so complicated in my head.

yes that is exactly how it will work. When you dial a number in the 816 area code, instead of WinFax thinking it is long distance (and adding a +1 in front of the number) it will discard the +1 and simply dial the 816-XXX-XXXX number.

So, in simple terms both 913 and 816 will be local area codes for you when you dial out once you add 816 in your area code rules.
