Cherokee Communications

How do I make long distance calls?

Cherokee Communications provides crystal-clear digital phone service, which helps you make local and long distance phone calls. To make a long-distance phone call, first pick up your receiver and wait for a dial tone. Then, dial the number "1" along with the 3-digit area code and the 7-digit phone number you wish to call. For local calling, simply dial the local seven-digit number.

Long distance, dial: 1-555-555-5555

Local, dial: 555-5555

To activate home phone service, call us at 1-844-4CHEROKEE or chat with us by clicking "chat now" below.

When you activate home phone service, we'll help you select a long-distance carrier. While your local service comes through Cherokee Communications, your carrier helps connect the long-distance calls, which will be reflected on your monthly bill.

TIP: Check with your carrier for dial-around codes to avoid unnecessary fees.
