Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9931901A1] An account calling card service includes the steps of receiving, at a service switching point, a telephone number entered by a caller, and verifying, at a service control point coupled to the service switching point, the received telephone number as an account calling card service access telephone number. Further prompting the caller, by an intelligent peripheral, for a calling card number, and receiving, at the service switching point, a first set of multi-digit number entered by the caller. The service control point then verifies that the received first set of multi-digit number is a valid calling card number associated with a pre-established account. The intelligent peripheral then prompts the caller for a destination number in response to the received first set of multi-digit number being verified as a valid account calling card number. The caller enters a destination number, and the call is completed to the destination number. Charges associated with the completed call are billed to the pre-established account.
