Bypassing long distance restrictions using *67

Bypassing long distance restrictions using *67

Bypassing long distance restrictions using *67

Long distance dialing restriction is enabled on our phones.  However, we recently discovered that people are picking up the hand set, dialing *67 and a long distance phone number (3 beeps are heard) and the long distance call completes getting past the restriction.  

I have searched the manuals and can not find anything referencing *67 with respect to restrictions or accessing trunks.

Can anyone explain what is happening?

RE: Bypassing long distance restrictions using *67

If i remember Feature *68 and a password is the correct way to dial out on a restricted extension. I have never heard of the *67.

RE: Bypassing long distance restrictions using *67

*67 invokes CLID blocking. You  must dial *67 each time you wish to do this. When invoked you will get a stuttered dial tone return. The stuttered dial tone return seems to alow a bypass of normal dialing filters and their COS passwords. I don't know if this glich goes beyond norstar. You must put a dialing filter in for 67 and that will restrict the glich.
Probably any stuttered dial tone return will knock out the dialing filters and COS password.


RE: Bypassing long distance restrictions using *67

Phone Man is absolutely correct.  I've seen this on Norstar's and I just add *67 to the restriction filter.  Then whenever someone dials *67, they will see restricted call come up.

good call guys is there a fix for this other than an added restriction?
