Modifying Mac OS X Dialer To Accomodate New Dialing Rules

Due to an increase in demand for telephone numbers, the Illinois Commerce Commision approved the addition of a new area code, 779, for the same geographic area as the 815 area code. Beginning February 17, 2007, all calls dialed with 7 digits within the 815 area code will require 1 + 10 digit dialing using 1 + area code + 7 digit telephone number. To ensure your dialup internet service with Rock River Internet will work after this change please get a head start by following the steps below to modify your windows dialier.


Go to the Finder. Choose "Applications" then choose "Internet Connect"

At the top of the window choose "Internal Modem" (assuming your modem is internal). Then find your Rock River Internet dialup configuration (normally the only one).

Add 1815 in front of the existing 9680888

Hold down the Apple key and then press Q to quit out of the Internet Connect application. This will prompt you to save your settings. Choose "Save".
