- The area or city code, if any, of the place you are dialing from within
your country, for example 212 for Manhattan, New York City.

location (normally left blank).
- Maximum redials
- The maximum number of times to automatically redial the number if it
is busy. NOTE: Automatic redialing is prohibited by law in some
countries, and the maximum number of redials might be restricted in others.
Be careful not to violate local laws.
- Redial interval
- How many seconds to wait between automatic redial attempts. The minimum
interval between automatic redial attempts might be specified by local law.
- The number of seconds to wait for a call to be answered before declaring

The Local Calls Page
Enter any Prefix or Suffix needed for local dialing. Normally,
no prefix or suffix is needed, in which case you should leave these boxes
The Area Codes box is for listing all the area codes to which calls
from this location are local (meaning that the long-distance prefix is not
used), but which must be dialed. In the North American dialing region, this
is where you handle "ten digit dialing". Do not include your own area code in
this list unless you must dial it (as is the case, for example, in the US
state of Maryland). The format for this box is zero, one, or more area codes
separated by spaces (not commas). An area code may also include an "exchange"
in cases where it makes a difference.
