When submitting a DTFO Change order for existing 8XX, the correct Customer Account Number or Product Account Number that the 8xx exists on must be selected.  Selecting an incorrect Customer Account Number or Product Account Number will result in the order failing validation after it is submitted.  A new order will then have to be submitted with the correct information.

    2. Select the Product Account from the Product Account ID/Product Description list.

  1. Select Yes or No or Do Not Change for Real Time ANI Requested.

    • Real Time ANI allows dedicated access for you to receive the ANI of the calling party if the call originates from an equal access end office.

    • Real Time ANI is currently provided via in-band signaling. Terminating equipment must accept Feature Group D (FGD) signaling.

    • Real Time ANI must be added on the trunk group prior to adding the feature to a Toll Free number.

Changing 8XX numbers

You can use the 8XX List to change up to 1000 toll-ree numbers; paste your list from  Word, Excel, Notepad, or WordPad, or other word processing, spreadsheet, or text editor.

Do the following to ensure that your text is formatted correctly:

  • Each toll-free number must be 10 numeric digits in length.
  • Each toll-free number must not include parentheses, spaces or hyphens.
  • Each DNIS number must equal the value entered in the DNIS Length field. (If the DNIS number value is blank, the system will generate the DNIS value beginning with the last digit of the toll-free number.)
  • DNIS Length must be between 2-10 digits in length.
  • Each toll-free row must include a space between the Toll Free number and DNIS.
  • Each toll-free row must terminate with a carriage return.
  1. Select from DNIS Length list if desired
    1. If DNIS Length is selected and DNIS value is not entered, the system assigns a DNIS value. 
  1. You can type the 8XX numbers in manually, or copy and paste them into the 8XX List field.
  1. Click Validate. Click Clear to reset fields in this section.

DTFO Change Order - 8XX Numbers Section Examples

In this example, DNIS Length was selected as 4 digits, then only 10 digit 8XX numbers were pasted into 8XX List field. Clicking the Validate button caused the system to add the last four digits of each 8xx automatically (so 8442919119 becomes 8442919119 9119, where 9119 is the four digit DNIS).

If custom DNIS is desired (DNIS that does not match the toll free), first select the desired DNIS Length from drop down menu. Then enter or paste in the 8XX number followed by a space and then the custom DNIS number.

Validating 8XX numbers

  1. Use the Validate button to ensure the data you entered into the 8XX Numbers section is valid.

    For example, the DNIS Length selected will be validated against the 8XX List, if DNIS is manually entered in 8XX List. In this example, 4 digit DNIS was selected, but six digit DNIS was entered after the 8XX Number.  The Results Message notes DNIS in 8XX List is wrong, that it should be 4 digits instead of 6. The DNIS field can be edited to correct to the 4 digits that was selected in DNIS Length. Select Validate again;you are able to proceed when you receive ‘Validation Complete, No Errors’ message.

Another example is validating the formatting of the 8XX numbers.  In this example, the 8XX was entered as (800) 203-2085, with the space causing the last seven digits to appear as DNIS.  8XX and DNIS fields can be corrected, then select Validate button again.  You are able to proceed when you receive ‘Validation Complete, No Errors’ message as shown above.
