No. That is an advantage of switching your service to EverDial 1. Anytime someone uses your phone they will not have to remember to dial a 10-10 number first. They just pick up the phone and dial as usual and you always receive great low rates. Back to top

Whats the difference between everdial around and Everdial 1?
EverDial Around allows you to use a 10-10 number to dial around your existing carrier to take advantage of our rates, without switching from your current long distance carrier.
EverDial 1 gives you our BEST rates both in-state and state-to-state and we will become your new long distance provider. Back to top
What are the billing increments?
ALL domestic calls both in-state and state-to-state are billed in 6 second increments with only a 6 second minimum. That means that you would have a minimum charge of about 1 cent on any answered call billed at 5.5 cents. Since we divide up every minute into ten pieces or 6 second increments, you are only billed for the portion of the minute that you use. International calls have a 30 second minimum with 6 second billing thereafter. Back to top
Are the rates higher to call to wireless or mobile phones?
Within the USA, calls to wireless or mobile phones bill at the same state to state or in-state rate.
Please be aware that calls to mobile or wireless phones in many countries bill at a higher rate. If you look at the international chart and there is no special rate for mobile phones, then they will bill the same as a land line call.
