Other Long Distance Company – Operator Services Platforms Recordings


The following are examples of other local or long distance telephone company operator service platforms sounds and recordings.

MCI Operator Services Recordings

1-800-Collect call example (November 2005)

1-800-Collect is an operator services platform for MCI that places emphasis on placing collect calls but allows calling card calls as well. The voice is Pam Bassett. (Note: This was later sold to Viiz Communications in 2016, but latest branding as of January 2021 is by WiMacTel.)

Sprint Operator Services Recordings

1-800-FON-CALL example (January 2006)

1-800-FON-CALL was an operator services platform that Sprint uses for calling card calls. This is an example to a call that goes to a non-working number (rejected by the end phone company and is “kicked back” to Sprint, resulting in a Sprint recording). (Sprint turned off all long distance services in 2017.)

950-1033 call example (January 2006)

The 950 prefix was originally intended for calls to operator platforms other than AT&T. This has been phased out for the most part, but this one from Sprint is still in use. Unfortunately I did not have an active calling card to make a call on this platform, so you’ll hear the Touch Tones of placing the call, the steady tone where you could dial a call, and then reorder.
